Illuminature by Carnovsky- 10.31.16

Holiday shopping yet? Need a present for kids… who like animals? Consider it done. Illuminature - the new book from our friends Carnovsky - is perfect! Also pretty awesome for animal/art loving adults (like me!) It’s a nice big hardcover book (11.4 x 0.5 x 13.8 inches) that makes a nice sized gift, only think i might add are some extra colored glasses if there are a few kids around!

I’ve been enamored by the work of Carnovsky (Silvia Quintanilla and Francesco Rugi) for years! (Full disclosure/added bonus, we all went to grad school in Milan together!) Their RGB project has mesmerized… from award winning wallpapers to huge wall stickers (one of which is still on my ceiling) to scarves and more… their beautifully layered imagery hides so many layers in plain sight - until you filter it with a red, blue, or green lens.

In their new book, Illuminature, you get all the beauty of their previous works, with an educational twist. They take you through 10 destinations around the world, each one examined in three layouts. First they tell you about the destination, then you can peruse the scene at the Observation Deck, and finally a guide to all the species you’ve seen.

Each lens takes you into a different layer of the destination. Red shows you the daytime creatures, Green shows you plant life, and blue shows you the nocturnal and crepuscular creatures lurking in the darkness! The book will take you everywhere from the Congo Rain Forest to the Simpson Desert, through the Ganges River Basin and down into the Apo Reef, explore Loch Lomond, the Redwood Forests, and beyond! Take a peek into more details of Illuminature on the next page!
