Open-Book: an Illustrated Essay by M. Kasper (2010)

Open-Book: an Illustrated Essay

Straight from the website of Ugly Duckling Presse, "Open-Book, An Illustrated Essay, is an accordion-fold book of eleven five-line observations on an ancient form of interior d├ęcor, a sublime aspect of authority, known as marble revetment. The texts in Open-Book float on marble simulations made using the drawing and filtering functions of photo-manipulation software."

I would add that it has a generic cardboard cover with a special black paper wrap to hold it in place. Not everything that UDP does is a hit.
