Fresh back from Japan and Hong Kong and I would like to share a few things I brought back with you. First up is the most amazing book by French graphic artist Marion Bataille. It’s called ABC 3d and is the most amazing folding book. It’s like a chicldrens book for adults, and a visual orgasm for a graphic designer!

I bought this book in the most wonderful children’s bookstore in Tokyo called Crayonhouse (sorry no website, but it’s in the area of Omotesando).

Enjoy the little movie of the book below.

Just bought it a few months ago in Rome. A small but amazing papershop near the Spanish Steps… Know that my friend saw it in Berlin last month. So you needn’t go all the way to Tokyo;0)

This is a book from New York based Roaring Brook Press. A friend’s friend’s sister was the editor during it’s creation. So glad to see it made it around the world. It’s an awesome little book!
