Walter Benjamin

This was a school project where we had to design a book based on a text by Walter Benjamin. Because the essay itself focused on the reproduction of artwork, I made a book that changes its form in the hands of the readers and can never be the same as it was while new and unread. The book has its cover and back sewn together. To read the book you must tear the threads to open the book. Later you can fold back the torn edges so the book looks clean, even when it’s been opened.

While tearing away the edge, you also get rid of the barcode and all of the other useless detailsthat are useless to you as the reader.
