Visionaire Issue 56 has recently been published and this "solar" issue is like getting two books in one. Indoors, the board-bound book appears to be in a white embroidered slipcase with beautiful black and white photography and art. Expose it to the sun and the case, the embroidery and the images within the book transforms into color.
Contributing artists include Yoko Ono, John Baldessari, Ugo Rondinone, Inez Van Lambsweerde, Vinoodh Matadin, Mario Sorrenti, Roe Ethridge, M/M (Paris), Alex Katz, Richard Phillips, Olaf Breuning, Peter Lindbergh, Ryan McGinley, Richard Burbridge and Glen Luchford.
Here are some of the images in the issue as they appear indoors (left or above) and outdoors (right or below ):
The book is limited to 3,000 issues. This collectible book as well as back issues of Visionaire can be purchased at Visionaire World.
But here's a tip, you can often find them cheaper here: Visionaire Issues at Amazon
