GOOD BOOK GOES HIP: Visionaire, the high-concept, high-priced quarterly in which edgy visual artists of every stripe explore one subject, has turned to the Bible. Catherine Chalmers has a sexy take on the serpent, above, and Enrique Badulescu recasts David and Goliath as fashion models. A curved wooden Frank Gehry creation becomes Noah's Ark. Even Philippe Starck's spiky plastic packaging is fun. Not as visionary as the original, but fascinating.
