Contest: Win a first edition of Tree of Codes
Jonathan Safran Foer’s latest book is turning heads because of its remarkable design. Inspired by one of the author’s favorite reads, Tree of Codes is unlike anything on your bookshelf. The book’s pages have been published using a die-cut technique that means the pages are filled with holes through which you can view the text on the following pages.
Tree of Codes is half book, half art and has been creating a buzz in the literary world since it was published in the UK. Safran Foer cut pieces of text from The Street of Crocodiles by Polish author Bruno Schulz in order to create his own book.
Safran Foer already has a glowing reputation after writing Everything Is Illuminated, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Eating Animals. Tree of Codes endears him to the art and design community. I have a first edition on my desk and it’s remarkable. I’d say it’s closer to art than literature – watch our video below for proof.
