altered books: tree of codes

January 21, 2011



Tree of Codes by Jonathan Safran Foer is the second book published by Visual Editions, according to S.Oliveros “Tree of Codes has done something no other literature has done before, and that is; every page has a different die-cut. It is a sculptural masterpiece as well as being an incredible story.”

I did not realize altering book is part of a contemporary trend, when I started blogging about them. There is a growing collection of altered books on my blog, so I am considering atarting a new category.  This one looks particularly interesting as it becomes a sculpture while remaining a readable book. So delicate.
