Yusuke Oono explores fairytales in three-dimensional books
Japanese designer and architect Yusuke Oono has created four books which approach story telling from an interesting perspective. Unlike traditional two-dimensional books, Oono’s books can be opened in a beautiful 360 degrees circular fan, allowing the reader to enjoy one page at a time, as well as the fully unfolded book, where all pages are visible at once.
The pages are designed digitally after which Oono cuts the images with a laser-cutter and bound them in a book-like format. Oono’s series includes four books, each of which counts 40 pages and can fit in a palm. Some books are visual interpretations of famous fairytales such as Snow White and The Jungle Book, while others are original stories like Sweet Home and In A Cheese.
Oono said that the idea behind this project was to create a new system to express dimensions. The books combine architecture with graphic design creating a three dimensional visual scene to tell stories visually.
