ABC3D

French Marion Bataille came up with ABC3D, a pop-up book as much as a work of art.

This is just a hand-made mock-up of the actual book, but the good news is that it will be published in October this year.
One of those books you want to keep forever.

This is a great resource for a lot of out of print JD Salinger stories.

In almost every pictures

The guy Erik Kesselkramer from flat Holland does some good books. For example this one. He found a collection of hundreds of photos taken by a husband of his wife during the years 1956 to 1968 on a flea market in Barcelona. Why not make a book, he thought. Sometimes it’s so easy.

In Almost Every Picture
