Fairytale Book Covers By Latvian Artist Aniko Kolesnikova

Elaborate book covers have been Aniko Kolesnikova’s passion since 2009. The Latvian designer-artist, working under the name Mandarin Duck, specializes in creating dragon-, animal-, bird-, fantasy-, and nature-inspired polymer journals. She occasionally takes custom orders, too. Bookbinding in the West is recorded from the 5th century onwards, although the earliest surviving book is the 8th-century St. Cuthbery Gospel. Books were bound in materials such as wood, leather, and cloth, but did you know that some books were also bound in human skin? This is called anthropodermic bibliopegy. Kolesnikova has made YouTube tutorials on journal cover design too, so if binding with skin isn’t your thing, she’ll teach you how to do it with polymer.

$23 Million Fairy-Tale Home in Germany

This is $23 million masterpiece house hiding among the green forests of Germany’s Grünwald. Landscaped roofs almost camouflage the nearly 9,000-square-foot home even from an aerial view. One must look closely to spot the curvilinear lines of its wide cedar eaves. Completed in 2014, the five-bedroom, five-bathroom compound includes a main home spread across four levels; a summerhouse; and a guesthouse with two apartments. Downtown Munich is just 8 miles up the road from Grünwald, one of Germany’s wealthiest towns. Showpiece features beyond the serpentine architecture include swirling intarsia wood floors that combine teak, cherry, and other fruitwoods; and seven unique fireplaces. The more time you spend in the home, the more leaf, branch, and petal shapes you begin to notice among the ceilings and walls. The sinuous spaces also accommodate a library, a gym, a music room, and a special car elevator that accesses an underground, six-car garage. A nearly Olympic-size indoor swimming pool sits among colorful mosaic decking and trunk-like green columns. In the steam room, ergonomic lounges facilitate relaxation, and experience showers reinvigorate. Outside, a second pool is disguised by park-like gardens to look like a natural swimming hole.

Brothers Grimm’s Wanderings is the second part of a photo project that started with Brothers Grimm’s Homeland. The photos are inspired by the old fairtytales written by the Brothers Grimm. Therefore Kilian Schönberger is searching places throughout Central Europe that echo the mood of those old stories. ‘I think there is a deep longing for tranquil naturalness among people in our techonology-driven environment. Therefore I don’t want to show just potrayals of natural scenes – I want to create visually accessible places where the visitor can virtually put his mind at rest and make up his own stories. Possibly this is the real benefit of my work: Resting places for the eyes in an visually overstimulated world.” Take a look!
