Tree of Codes

Jonathan Safran Foer's new release comes from The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz.

Teamed with Visual Editions, Foer has created a work from the words of Schulz that is sure to be as beautiful to read as it is to hold and look at. According to a video by the author and VE, Foer believes die-cutting is the "perfect intersection of the visual arts and literature".

To see the video of Foer speaking about the book, click through the jump, where you can also watch a video of people opening the book and reacting to its unusual format.

This book is definitely going on my Christmas list.
