Andrea Dezso: Shadow Books

Andrea Dezso, an artist and instructor at Parsons School of Design, made these exquisite Shadow Books, "one-of-a-kind multi-layered, hand-sewn and cut paper theaters illuminated with light emitting diodes".

These books tell the tragic story of a small girl, a goose and a witch in New York City.

These books are in private collection, but are a beautiful example of what can happen when an old medium is mixed with some new concepts. Shadow Books don't connect to 17 varieties of wifi networks, or scan your irises before you can view them, but they take a little bit of technology and turn it into something so enchanting that they make me want to take a step back from all the buzzing gadgets and just walk through this paper world.
For more on Andrea Dezso, and to read and see more about the increasingly lost art of bookmaking, visit Dennis Yuen's amazing new site devoted to paper: CaiLun.
