Open Book – A Multi-Narrative Reconfiguration of Nineteenth Century Tales

The open book should not be closed for changes or additions, and therefore does not have a cover.
The nineteenth-century style title page of the book gives credits to the writers of the original material.
Each of the books from which material was used is listed.
An index of the book shows its non-sequential structure, and visualises the important nodes by scaling them into a bigger font.
An example page from the book showing the original material from page 243 of The Picture of Dorian Gray (right).
An example page from the book showing the original material from page 423 of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (right).
An example page from the book showing the original material from page 91 of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (right).
An example page from the book showing the original material from page 479 of A Tale of Two Cities (right).
The specific paragraphs were selected based on the amount of characters in that passage. Each of the characters names was interchanged with those of the authors, and linked accordingly.
The bottom of the pages shows which links are available for the reader to follow next.
As the book only introduces a non-sequential way of reading the classic literarary works, the original pagenumbers should correspond with the actual material, instead of with the book itself.
