The new issue of Visionaire pushes the limits of paper with an issue devoted to pop-ups.
Visionaire, the limited-edition art and fashion publication, collaborates with the House of Krug, creators of Prestige Cuvée champagnes, on a new issue themed SURPRISE.
Visionaire 55 SURPRISE features intricate pop-ups by 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.
Executed by renowned paper engineers, the issue astonishes viewers with moveable images, three-dimensional scenes, and surprise reveals. The pop-up folios are housed in a dark purple cloth-covered case with a magnetized closure and engraved metal plaque.
Visionaire is a multi-format art and fashion publication produced in numbered limited editions. Since its inception in the Spring of 1991, Visionaire has offered a forum for works by both famous and emerging artists from around the world who collaborate with Visionaire to produce their personal interpretations on a theme, and are given unparalleled freedom to push Visionaire’s original formats.
The House of Krug, established in 1843, has, throughout six generations, pursued craftsmanship and bespoke luxury, reflected in its collection of exclusive Prestige Cuvée champagnes. Renowned for its inimitable taste, Krug is not only a personal favourite of experts and connoisseurs, but is regarded the world over as the ultimate expression of discernment and individuality.
