Artist publishes a book using the negative space image created by his own home.

If you happen to be a voracious reader, then this limited edition book called Your House by Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson may not be for you. Instead of an alphabet, the book makes use of various shapes to show the negative space created by the artist’s home just outside Copenhagen.

While it may not be very descriptive, the book doesn’t spare any detail when it comes to the layout of Eliasson’s house, depicting the roof, windows, and even a basement crawlspace are within the pages of laser-cut paper. The book is no short story either, coming in at an impressive 908 pages.

Designed with the help of Michael Heimann and Claudia Baulesch, the architectural chronicle was published by the Library Council of the Museum of Modern Art in 2006.
