Visionaire & House of Krug Pop-Up Book

Some Dope iish to cop for your loved one for Christmas.

Visionaire is a "multi-format album of fashion and art" published 3 times a year in limited numbers. Each issue has a different theme and format, and the lastest issue, n.º 55, made in collaboration with House of Krug (the creators of Cuvèe champagne) is entitled "Surprise", because this issue is devoted to pop-ups. Visionaire produced this issue with intricate pop-ups by a selection of contemporary artists and designers like Sophie Calle, Andreas Gursky, Cai Guo-Qiang, Steven Klein, Yayoi Kusama, Alasdair McLellan, Steven Meisel, Guido Mocafico, Nicola Formichetti/Gareth Pugh, Sølve Sundsbø, and Mario Testino.

The pop-ups come encased in a dark purple cloth-covered case with a magnetized closure and engraved metal plaque. Visionaire N° 55 is printed in a limited edition of 4000 copies with a price of 250$ each.
