ANIMAL BOOKS FOR JAAP ZENO ANNA JULIAN LUCA



Malin: This book is a family project, you can tell! It contains one big collage spread throughout every page. Animals, categorized by species, found everywhere in the world – not in zoos or in nature, but in newspapers and magazines. This book is a beautiful object, with beautifully arranged material that is very pleasurable to look at for both young and old! The format, paper and colors all go well together. Bravo!

 

Ruby: I agree with Malin, that this book indeed works for young and old; anyone can enjoy flipping through this Animal book. Sometimes things work in numbers, and that is exactly the case here. Imagine scanning through the green thick block and seeing new stuff each time. People often start projects at home by saving or cutting out images, and eventually people lose interest and forget all about it. This book is a token of hope for all these unfinished and forgotten-about crafty projects. The book is living proof that when being consistent and following something through to the end you might end up with something truly amazing.

Patrick: I agree. Every time one looks through the book there are new things to discover. The idea is very clear and the designer has implemented that idea well and consistently. No crazy tricks or decoration.

Birgit: What I would also like to add is the beautiful insight this book gives us into the relationship between a grandmother and her grandchildren. It shows this involvement and that gives me a warm and nostalgic feeling. In a way it’s a tribute to grandparents as much as it is a tribute to all the animals.

Auke: I think everything has been said. Good weight! I also like the gesture of the tape holding the collection together. The content speaks for itself. Every little extra that would have been added would have been to much. I like how you sometimes see the fore edge of the original books. Sometimes there is this ‘random’ all-white page. These pages were probably already empty in the original books and I like how this is kept in the book. In combination with the black pages that announces another chapter for another grandchild, it breaks the sequence in a natural way. Thanks for sharing!
