Carving Stories Out Of Stories
An industrial manufacturing technique is used to sculpt a new story from an old book.
London book publisher Visual Editions has designed a book that blends sculptural artistry with masterful storytelling. Tree of Codes by Jonathan Safran Foer uses a die-cut technique to carve out a new story from his favorite book, The Street of Crocodiles, by Bruno Schulz. The book has a different die-cut on every page and took almost a year to compose.
