Visionaire 59 Fairytale: A Collection Of Unique Story Books By Various Artists





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.




Each book is individually-bound with a hard-cover and contains between 16 and 56 pages of artworks and text. Each story features some sort of unique production technique, be it glow-in-the-dark, scratch-n-sniff, lenticular, holography, flocking, or foil-stamping. Below are images of the cover of each fairy tale and one sample spread from each.

About Visionaire:
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."

Looks pretty cool. Art collaborations are usually nice when worked in with talented people.

Thanks for the info.

C'mon people, it's only a dollar.
