today i am bringing you a literary blog post, because i have spent the afternoon reading blogs by girls who take photos of the outfits they wore and then write about them. Sometimes they go shopping for make-up and write about the make-up they shopped for.
this book is by Johnathan Safran Foer, one of my favourite authors. I don't want to go into a long-winded creative gush, but simply put, he takes words and makes them mean things that mean other things in very clever ways. Just read some of his books, you'll get it.
this new book is called Tree of Codes and amazingly, literally AMAZINGLY it is sculpted from another pre-exisiting book called The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Scultz. Words have been cut out from each page, and each page after that, until the page you are reading goes many layers deep.
Just think about this logistical nightmare of a project....*headache.
But isn't it incredible?
