Visionaire #55 Surprise
The newest issue of the high-concept fashion quarterly Visionaire pushes the limits of paper with an issue devoted to pop-ups. Visionaire 55: Surprise presents 12 hardcover pop-up books, boxed together, with projects by Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Sophie Calle, Andreas Gursky, Cai Guo-Qiang, Guido Mocafico, S0lve Sundsb0, Yayoi Kusama, Gareth Pugh and Alasdair McLellan. Together, the pop-up folios are housed in a cloth-covered case with a magnetized closure and an engraved metal plaque. Surprise is a collaboration with the internationally renowned Champagne house, Krug.

I bought the Mert&Mercus issue (with the Vuitton case) and it felt great at first, but then I kinda regretted spending so much

But this issue sounds really nice, and $200 isn't too expensive so I'll have to consider it...

They are like a piece of art in a book format. And each release is a limited edition. Just check eBay... and you'll see how much some of the older issues go for. I have a few of the earlier ones. The Diana Vreeland one is amazing!

thank you MissMagAddict

I sometimes see them listed on eBay, and the prices are expensive.
But now you mention "art in a book format" I get the picture, it explains a lot.
thank you
