I love the bookworks of Visual Editions. There seem to be very few publishers that are really trying to do anything different with literary fiction. Yes there are mainstream hits now and then with some ‘unorthodox’ innards; House of  Leaves, Raw Shark Texts etc but by and large it is business as usual unfortunately.

With the printed word now perhaps facing a long slow extinction event maybe this is the way forward for actual physical books? Make the wordy material more than just the words ie really big up the objectness of the textual container.
