The New Machiavelli goes USB

110708digital-book02.jpg

As part of the Blood on Paper exhibition, which gave artists a book and then asked them to customize it, Richard Shed took a sixty year old Penguin Classics copy of The New Machiavelli, digitized each pages and placed it on its own miniature USB homunculus. I love it: the only thing its missing is the skittering of tiny blood red spiders in the crevice of the spine. H.G. Wells would approve!

    I feel so vindicated that someone else has experienced the crazy, tiny, bright red book spiders.

    Free, and with a much smaller carbon footprint:

    D/L the HTML version, unZip it, print it to your ‘PDF’ printer, and read it on your favorite ereader. Total time: 6 minutes.

    My favorite: the iLiad.
