We’ve been talking to writer Alan Trotter for a little while now about working on something together, long enough in fact for Alan to start and finish a PhD and to move from Brixton to Scotland with a bit of Washington DC in between.

Making Jonathan Safran Foer’s vision a reality four years ago, with the help of the incredibly talented Sara De Bondt, not to mention the only printers in the world who would do it, Die Keure in Belgium, and Jon Gray’s cover design, has been a big emotional part of Visual Editions: a benchmark for how far we, through the collective creative power of ambition and can-do-ness, can push the boundaries of how we read and what a book as an object can be.

We’re back in the Visual Editions HQ on 5th January 2015. We’ll be sending books out all this week from our warehouse, and we’ll probably also sneak in the occasional email check after this week. So please bear with us if we take a bit longer getting back to you than usual.
Thank you for all your support this year. Happy holidays and here’s to a fantastic new year. Read this.

We got a call last week from our American distributors. And they told us they have been storing copies of Tree of Codes in what they call a “hurt shroud”. A place we can only describe as a place where books go when they are slightly damaged before they are pulped. And we asked for these hurt copies to be sent (SAVED!) to our London office before their imminent warehouse death in Jackson, Tennessee. Read this.
