From El Lissitzky, Kurt Schwitters and Bruno Munari to Paul Chan, Lawrence Weiner and Richard Prince, modern artists have found ingenious ways of reinventing and reimagining books for children. With its expanded possibilities for visual play and storytelling, the children's book as a form in itself has been increasingly explored by contemporary artists. Now, Visionaire 59: Fairytale presents a mini-library of children's stories by contemporary artists and photographers in collaboration with writers.
Ranging in themes from the delightful to the philosophical, and packaged in a luxurious slipcase, Visionaire's newest issue offer a meditation on innocence and childlike creativity, and makes an ideal gift for readers of all ages. Founded in 1991 as a collection of artwork and images hand-assembled by a group of friends in a one-room apartment in New York City, Visionaire has since grown into one of the most highly sought-after fashion and art publications in the world. The New Yorker has characterized Visionaire magazine as a "creative playground for leading designers, artists, photographers and thinkers," adding "it's a gallery in print. A cabinet of irresistible curiosities. A daring iconoclast dressed to thrill."
