Jonathan Safran Foer’s new book, entitled “Tree of Codes,” it’s a collection of die-cut pages from his favorite book, Bruno Schulz’s “The Street of Crocodiles.” Made as an exploration of “the pages’ physical relationship to one another” and the die-cut technique, Foer attempts to create a meaningful narrative with an existing text.

Thanks to Die Keure, a  Belgian printer who relished the challenge of making a book with a different die-cut on every page, and over a year of writing, cutting and proto-typing later, comes Tree of Codes, a haunting new story by Jonathan Safran Foer cut from Bruno Schulz’s words. The book is as much a sculptural object as it is a work of masterful storytelling: here is an “enormous last day of life” that looks like it feels.

The book will be published  15 November 2010
