Helen Friel, The Imp of the Perverse
“A short story by Edgar Allan Poe, ‘The Imp of the Perverse’ discusses the imp inside all of us that leads us to do things we know we shouldn’t do. Each page is perforated in a grid system with sections of the text missing. Readers must follow the simple instructions to tear and fold specific sections to reveal the missing text. Books are usually perceived as precious objects and this destruction is engineered to give the reader conflicting feelings, do they keep the book in it’s perfect untorn form? Or give into the imp and enjoy tearing it apart?”
I want this. Anyone that buys this for me will just have me forever. FOREVER.
