The tree of codes – source of inspiration

Ink drawing , forest transect, trunks in black like a barcode

There are some books one has to have. The tree of codes by Jonathan Safran Foer is one of those for me. Cover graphics and title got my attention immediately. There can be some sort of magic in books, especially in art and artists books, they can spark off ideas or close missing connections.
Visual Editions seem to be an amazing bookmaking company.

The barcode like tree trunk ink drawing is the first of a series that shall go into an artists book to be published on blurb later this year. Drawing or painting in the forest is confusing in a way (so many things and details) and liberating at the same time as there is no composition, no picture unless you force it. It is easy to let the picture go and grasp the abstract graphics instead.
