360 DEGREE CHRISTMAS CARD

by Miryam Muller in


This beautiful holiday 360 degree Christmas book has been made by Yusuke Oono. Earlier this year in October the German-based artist was a winner in the Fab Cafe laser cutter design contest, winning with his fairytale storybook. This time, he takes us into a wintery wonderland of Christmas. The artist says, "The initial idea of this 360 degree book is expressing one scene of a story in a three dimensional way using a whole page of a book," and Oono does an awesome job with this in all of his designs.

This Christmas book features most of the typical characters of the winter season, including Santa Claus, reindeer, and a snowman, set around a central Christmas tree, with snowflakes falling all around. Yusuke designs each product with 3D CAD software which is more often used for architecture. This time, he designed the central tree around the spine, making the object appear more three dimensional, while the rest of the creatures and characters in the story are flat. Oono hopes that when readers open the closed book, they are surprised by the interior pages dramatically transforming into a captivating tale of imagination.
