THE FIRST NFT ARTIST FLIPBOOK
The third issue of CryptoArt Monograph is revealing a new protagonist of the Digital Art scene in Web3. We have once again pushed the limits of Web3 Publishing, creating for the first time ever the first artist flipbook in NFT.
An artist’s book is a real work of art, conceived by its creator in the form of a book but with all the characteristics of a work of art: original, unique and representative of artistic research.
In this sense, Andrea Crespi, the protagonist of the third CryptoArt Monograph, interpreted the concept of an artist’s book by intervening with one of his unpublished works not only on the cover of the monograph but on all its pages.
Through a grid of lines – a primordial gesture of artistic creation – he traces the path to discover his art in the world of NFTs until he reveals the one who is hidden beneath those living lines: Mona Lisa, a timeless icon.
But this new edition of CryptoArt Monograph, carefully curated by Sandie Zanini, takes on a new value: for the first time it becomes a phygital artist’s book, by its nature born as an NFT, it also finds space in reality with the publication of the book.
Graduated in industrial product design at the European Institute of Design in Milan (IED), he focused his career on communication and visual arts.
Andrea Crespi is a visual artist whose work develops in the continuous investigation of different media and themes including optical illusion, social transformation, the digital revolution, materializing in the interpretation of contemporary cultural changes that often see him involved in various charity and solidarity initiatives.
Crespi’s research identifies art as an instrument of perception and analysis of truth through a search for beauty, sometimes manifesting itself in an intimate, personal and erotic portrait of it.
The proposed subjects often rethink cultural icons in the function of multiple narrations of the reality that surrounds us. By harnessing the fluidity of memory, each work redefines itself through the filter of contemporaneity, thus becoming a witness to our time.

The time has come to tell the great Crypto Artists, their history, their artistic research, their digital works of art, and the platforms and metaverses where they operate.
The CryptoArt Monograph series by The NFT Magazine was created in collaboration with the most important and visionary curators to narrate and “timestamp” the evolution of Crypto Art to the present day over time.
Why Crypto Art Monograph was born
After the great international success of the book “CRYPTO ART BEGINS” born on an idea and project by The NFT Magazine, published by Rizzoli, we have decided to continue the work of research and curatorship on the world of Crypto Art, yet to be discovered.
Thanks to “Crypto Art Monograph” we reveal every month the great protagonists of the digital art scene in the WEB3.
