Art of Play expands their beloved Tangram series with the remarkable Tangram - Volume 4.
This celebration of beauty and wonder explores the concept of “light”. How does what we see affect the way we think?
Tangram - Volume 4 offers visual, tactile, and intellectual inspiration in a luxurious analog form that invites you to step away from the glowing screen. Rekindle your appreciation for the magic of printed words and images.
This light requires no batteries.
Some of the astounding optical concepts illuminated throughout the issue include:
- Inventor Minori Yamazaki capturing the cosmos in a box of seemingly infinite dimensions
- Legendary lighting designer Jules Fisher offering 14 imperatives for successful creative practice
- Physicist Ray Hall of @physicsfun invites you inside his world-famous collection of science toys
- Poet Enrique Enriquez joins curator Denise Markonish for a pre-dawn viewing of James Turrell’s Skyspace at MassMOCA.
All this and tons of other thought-provoking articles, interactive illusions, papercraft amusements, and the most fun and accessible puzzle hunt to date.
Tangram - Volume 4 is a gorgeous coffee table book. It has two distinct covers (distributed at random) featuring static animation artworks by Takahiro Kurashima which spring to life with the help of an included lenticular lens.
NOTE: No magic tricks or magic methods are taught in this book.
