ABC3D by Marion Bataille
A bursting with life ABC, in which the pages go towards the curious reader and move in three dimensions in an astonishing way. The letters of the alphabet change each time becoming self-building architectures, hypnotic discs revolving in many directions, hidden tie-beams, reflecting mirrors, transparent pages... A sort of magic theatre made of pages of different types and colours. Not only a book-to-glance-through, not simply a toy for children and adults, ABC3D is a precious object issued from the intersection of creativity and design. A personal journey among the letters of the alphabet from A to Z. Marion Bataille was born in 1963 in Paris, where she attended the École Supérieure d’Arts Graphiques. She worked as graphic designer at many French magazines, newspapers and publishers such as Le Monde, Télérama, Gallimard, Le Centre Pompidou and many others. ABC3D is her third book.
