How does photography come to life? How do you transform 2-D into 3-D? Can a photograph move on the printed page? This newest issue of the high-concept fashion quarterly Visionaire pushes the limits of paper with an issue devoted to pop-ups. Visionaire 55: Surprise presents 12 hardcover pop-up books, boxed together, with projects by Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Sophie Calle, Andreas Gursky, Cai Guo-Qiang, Guido Mocafico, Sølve Sundsbø, Yayoi Kusama, Gareth Pugh and Alasdair McLellan. Together, the pop-up folios are housed in a cloth-covered case with a magnetized closure and an engraved metal plaque. Surprise is a collaboration with the internationally renowned Champagne house, Krug.
From Visionaire: 55 SURPRISE! An amazing POP-UP set of books produced by adapting work from artists like Yayoi Kusama, Andreas Gursky, 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.”
