TREE OF CODES ⋅ J. SAFRAN FOER, SARA DE BONDT STUDIO ⋅ VISUAL EDITIONS⋅ 2010
The book Tree of Codes by J. S. Foer is created starting from another book The street of Cocodriles by Bruno Schulz. By cutting, subtracting, re-appropriating the pages of The street of Cocodriles a second book emerges. Here, we witness an actual product hacking, developed with deep care for details and extreme care for both shape and contents.
"We spent many months of emails and phone calls, exploring the idea of the pages’ physical relationship to one another and how this could somehow be developed to work with a meaningful narrative." from visual-editions.com
