How cool is this idea?

Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is not a writer to repeat himself. After releasing his non-fiction book Eating Animals last year, he has now just completed what was deemed to be the “unmakeable book”.

After being turned down by multiple publishers, Belgian publishing company Die Keure proved it could be done.

“The book is actually a kind of interactive paper-sculpture: Foer and his collaborators at Die Keure in Belgium took the pages of another book, Bruno Schulz’s The Street of Crocodiles, and literally carved a brand new story out of them using a die-cut technique.”
