Visionaire. 55, Surprise
11 volumes : chiefly color illustrations, 27 cm + 1 advertiser's insert. "Visionaire issues often find their origins in commercial publishing techniques like lenticulars and flip-books, then elevate them to new artistic heights. Issue 55, SURPRISE, reimagined the children's pop-up book by adapting work from artists like Yayoi Kusama, Andreas Gursky, Cai Guo-Qiang, Sophie Calle, Steven Klein, and Steven Meisel into three-dimensional paper sculptures. To execute the mind-bogglingly complex pop-ups, Visionaire called on renowned paper engineer Bruce Foster, who shared his infinite wisdom. "Many of these techniques had never been done before," says Foster. "So each one was challenging in its own way"." -- Publisher's website.
