3D written portrait books

‘louis van gaal’

‘written portraits’ is a series of books which shows the different faces, literally, behind the selected autobiographies of anne frank, vincent van gogh, louis van gaal and kader abdolah. the campaign, created by dutch agency van wanten etctera, was conceived by markus ravenhorst and maarten reynen as part of dutch book week under the theme of (auto) biography. the artwork was executed by souverein whereby, each book was created to stand as a realistic 3D portrait of its author. the structure of the original book’s pages were used for the text within the portraits in order to achieve the right configuration for each.
