The books of book heroes: hand-stitched imaginary books
Once while reading Borges I tried to imagine a nonexistent book that was reviewed. Then I recalled a lot of fictional books described in the world literature that had never existed in reality.
For example, ‘The Mon­ster Book of Mon­sters’ from ‘Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban’ or ‘Treatise on the Steppenwolf’ from Hesse’s ‘Steppenwolf’.
So I made these imaginary books real.
 
Liza Bogolepov ‘Dry Lips’ (Vladimir Nabokov ‘Pnin’):
 
The book about human code (Oleh Romanenko ‘Kaleidoscope’):
