Object-assemblages as Illustrations for book Exeptional Talent

In the spring of 2019, TAMTAM made the illustrations for the book “Exceptional talent” by Frans Corten, a book about gifted people and other strange birds.

So we created a series of birds that arose from small insignificant finds and talented waste. They were object assemblies with bird-like features. Together with the author, we chose the ones that would be used in the book.

Below is a small selection of the original birds.
The result was a very special book, with a very special content too. Food for anyone who is too smart for this world…!
The book is available on this website
