The Tree of Codes

Yesterday I worked with the graphic designer Sara De Bondt, her most recognisable piece would be the visuals she designed for Celebrity Big Brother.

She has recently been asked to put together a book called Tree of Codes by Jonathan Safran Foer. Foer has taken his favourite book - Tree of Crocodiles and derived a new story from it.

He has created a narrative out of select words from each page, the sentences are poetic and intriguing. We physically cut out all the unwanted text from each page, leaving only the words that Foer had highlighted for the new story. The end piece is a sculptural book that is visually and literally intriguing.
