Three dimensional portrait biographies
Written Portraits were created by Markus Ravenhorst and Maarten Reynen of Etcetera for Dutch Book Week. These biographies accurately depict the faces the of Anne Frank, Vincent van Gogh, Louis van Gaal and Kader Abdolah in three dimensional glory.
These books appear to have been die-cut as is common in the print industry, but its not often economically viable to use die-cutting to such an elaborate degree as Souvervein have done for Etcetera. You can achieve similar results laser cutting paper. In fact Ponoko is currently running a prototyping party with free cardboard!
