This Is Not A Book

2" x 1 1/2", 78 pages, 25 illustrations. The box is  2 1/4" x 1 7/8" x 5/8"

Book inside books inside a book inside a book-shaped box.. This has been called the Droste effect, after their recursive advertisements. The book inside this book-shaped box is a collection of jacket designs for book that only exist inside real books: The Necronomicon, The Whole Art of Detection,  If On A Winter's Night A Traveler. Each is presented as if hidden inside a hollow book, for yet another layer of un-reality. The title, of course, is from Magritte's famous painting of not-a-pipe..

Also available in micro-miniature: This Is Not A Book
