Visionaire 59: A Mini-Library Of Children’s Books
The innovative publisher offers a meditation on "innocence and childlike creativity."
Visionaire’s latest issue has taken the form of a mini-library of children’s books. The collection comes wrapped in an old-time bookstrap, and each book uses a special process such as glow-in-the-dark, scratch-n-sniff or lenticular printing.
John Baldessari; Karen Kilimnik with a story by Kirsten Dunst; Douglas Gordon; Pierre Huyghe with a story by Mario Bellatin; James Franco & Carter; sculptor Ugo Rondinone with musician/writer John Giorno; fashion designers Viktor & Rolf; painter Richard Phillips with “Gossip Girl” writer Cecily von Ziegesar; musicians Björk and Sjón with artist Gabríela Fridriksdóttir; Jo Ratcliffe with text by Stéphanie Cohen Chaptal inspired by photography by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, and more.
The run is limited to 4,000 copies, and a portion of the proceeds go to the Blue School.
