About this title:
Synopsis:
Tree of Codes is a haunting new story by best-selling American writer, Jonathan Safran Foer. With a different die-cut on every page, Tree of Codes explores previously unchartered literary territory. Initially deemed impossible to make, the book is a first — as much a sculptural object as it is a work of masterful storytelling. Tree of Codes is the story of an enormous last day of life — as one character's life is chased to extinction, Foer multi-layers the story with immense, anxious, at times disorientating imagery, crossing both a sense of time and place, making the story of one person’s last day everyone’s story. Inspired to exhume a new story from an existing text, Jonathan Safran Foer has taken his "favorite" book, The Street of Crocodiles by Polish-Jewish writer Bruno Schulz, and used it as a canvas, cutting into and out of the pages, to arrive at an original new story told in Jonathan Safran Foer's own acclaimed voice.

About the Author:
Jonathan Safran Foer is the author of the novels Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and a work of nonfiction, Eating Animals. His books have won numerous awards and have been translated into 36 languages. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Book Description: London, Visual Editions, 2010. Broschiert. UK true first printing (text in English), signed by Jonathan Safran Foer on title page. The first printing is easily distinguishable from all further printings by the 3-paragraph Olafur Eliason quote - the later printings carry a New York Times blurp. Absolut mint copy of this outstanding book which is "as much a sculptural object as it is a work of masterful storytelling. With the story literally carved out of another book, "Tree of Codes" has a different die-cut on every single page. Telling the haunting story of an enormous last day of life, it is a book that looks every bit like it feels: unlike anything else. Visual Editions got turned down by every printer they approached - their stock line being the book you want to make just cannot be made. Thankfully, the publishers found "Die Keure" in Belgium who were up to the challenge and made the impossible possible. Over one year of writing, cutting and proto-typing later, comes "Tree of Codes", a book that defies all book conventions." (Visual Editions) "An extraordinary journey that activates the layers of time and space in the handling of a book and its heap of words. Jonathan Safran Foer deftly deploys scultural means to craft a truely compelling story." (Olafur Eliasson). Shipped bubble-wrapped in sturdy card-box. k6b Sprache: en Gewicht in Gramm: 550.
