Books, Sculptures, Text, Videos

This book is as much a sculptural object as it is a work of masterful storytelling: here is an “enormous last day of life” that looks like it feels. The art book makers of Visual Editions did a wonderful job and “Tree of Codes” is an ideal gift for art and book lovers everywhere.

“Jonathan Safran Foer, deftly deploys sculptural means to craft a truly compelling story. In our world of screens, he welds narrative, materiality, and our reading experience into a book that remembers that it actually has a body.”– Olafur Eliasson

“Revolutionary” – New York Times

“Very, very cool…delightfully tactile” – Vanity Fair

“The most potent work of art that Jonathan Safran Foer has yet produced.” – Michel Faber, The Guardian
