When it comes to books, Julie Chen doesn’t just see a flat rectangular cover filled with pages and words. Instead, the artist enjoys exploring the visual elements of what a book could look like. Chen has  redesigned books by combining text and images into shapes of board games, puzzles, and candy boxes. These creative shapes also challenge users to read the ‘book’ differently than what they may be used to.

Chen founded the Flying Fish Press in 1987 and since then, has been creating these impressive books. Each work is hand-bounded and letterpress-printed, with limited-edition publications.
