Tree of Codes

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2011

In ‘Tree of Codes’, author Jonathan Safran Foer wrote a new narrative by carving it out of an existing book. The design brief was to make the die-cut text obvious, workable and readable, while maintaining an element of surprise to draw in literary, design and art audiences. Sara De Bondt worked closely with Foer to create a book that has the familiarity of a typical paperback, yet allows for a unique, tactile, and almost sculptural reading experience.
