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.

Book Description: Visual Editions, London, 2010. Original Wraps. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. 1st UK. Fine in wraps. First UK edition, first printing. Still in shrinkwrap. This is a very small edition of this book that was specially printed. Foer's third book.He has taken his favorite story, The Street of Crocodiles by Polish-Jewish writer Bruno Schulz, and turned it into a very different story by cutting into and out of pages. The intricate design of overlapping layers is meant to give the reader a greater sense of time and space. (London), Visual Editions, (2010). The first edition, which was published in England as a paperback original, and is (according to the publisher's website) "as much a sculptural object as it is a work of masterful storytelling." Using a die cut technique, Foer carved a new text from his favorite book, Bruno Schulz's The Street of Crocodiles (also published as Cinnamon Shops). For example, the title Tree of Codes removes ten letters from The Street of Crocodiles. The book couldn't be published in hardcover, lest it collapse in on itself, and the text, only visible on rectos, is best read by inserting a blank sheet behind each page. Reported first issue, with the three-paragraph Olafur Eliasson blurb on the rear cover. Fine in wrappers. Foer is the author of Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, a novel of the aftermath of 9/11 that has just been released as a film. [#029085]. Bookseller Inventory # 1240

Book Description: London, Visual Editions, 2010. Broschiert. UK first edition, first printing, still sealed in publisher s shrinkwrap. True first printing, 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. For us, this is the most beautiful book of the year! The first printing is sold out at the publishers. Sprache: en Gewicht in Gramm: 550. Bookseller Inventory # 13153

Book Description: London, England: Visual Editions, 2010. Soft cover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 145 pages. Published in 2010. Artist Book. One of the most cutting-edge (literally) and innovative literary-cum-art projects of our time. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the 2011 Second, Third, and Fourth Reissued Editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a softcover original only. Please note: Copies "missing 5-digit EAN barcode" are the Uncorrected Proofs, which do not have the approved barcode yet. While they are an early, provisional state of the final edition, they cannot honestly be passed off as being the true First Edition any more than all other Uncorrected Proofs are, and the price dealers are asking for them is obscene. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Visual Editions: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Story and die-cut art by Jonathan Safran Foer. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Jonathan Safran Foer's book-length story. "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. 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, 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 Bruno Schulz, and used it as a canvas, cutting into and out of the pages, to arrive at an original new story told in his own acclaimed voice" (Publisher's blurb). One of the greatest living artists contributes a piece that appears on the back cover: "An extraordinary journey that activates the layers of time and space involved in the handling of a book and its heap of words. In our world of screens, he welds narrative, materiality, and our reading experience into a book that remembers it actually has a body" (Olafur Eliasson). It is surely worth noting that Bruno Schulz himself was that rare bird: A literary genius who was also a brilliant artist. An absolute "must-have" title for Bruno Schulz, Jonathan Safran Foer, literature, and Artist Book collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Jonathan Safran Foer. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few signed copies of the true First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. The First Edition should not be confused with any of the Reissued Editions, which almost all other copies available online are. Please note: Copies "missing 5-digit EAN barcode" are the Uncorrected Proofs, which do not have the approved barcode yet. While they are an early, provisional state of the final edition, they cannot honestly be passed off as being the true First Edition any more than all other Uncorrected Proofs are. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of The Guardian First Book Award for "Everything Is Illuminated" in 2002. Jonathan Safran Foer was selected as one of the "20 Writers Under 40" of the decade by The New Yorker Magazine. One of the most brilliant new voices in American literature. A fine collectible copy.
