Product Description: “Branches” is a multiplatform foldout book. Sequentially, it follows the seasonal progression of various trees. Back and front of the book have been encased in a dark green book cloth. Each page of the book contains a pop-up tree, accompanied by printed pattern, assumed to be leaves. The artist describes the book: “This book is designed both as a pop-up book but also as a fold-out, full pop-up scene. The book features a family of trees, in different seasons and of different generations. When opened individually, the paper canopies slowly blossom, as if the action of opening the page gives life to the tree. Fully folded out, the spiral layout allows all the trees to gather together.”
