Book printers said Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Unmakeable” Book “could not be made.” Belgian publishing house Die Keure proved them wrong. Jonathan Safran Foer’s book is an interactive paper-sculpture: Foer and his collaborators at Die Keure in Belgium took the pages of another book, Bruno Schulz’s The Street of Crocodiles, and literally carved a brand new story out of them using a die-cut technique.

You can see more pictures of the Tree of Codes on Visual Editions’s Flickr stream. This is gasp-for-air-stunning. At least in my book.

    Looking forward to having the book in my hands.

  2. This is incredible. The only downside is the lack of a pre-order link. I’m hoping one will appear soon. :-)

  3. very interesting visual object, too!

  4. Simply amazing! I would love to find a French edition!

  5. This is like a high tech, minimalist version of the Humument

  6. Beautiful. Would love to see this in person but would hate to be the guy that had to bind it!
