Edgar Alan Poe: The Black Cat Lana Banek
This is an experimental, interactive book, designed to convey one of the main subjects E. A. Poe addresses in his books: man’s need to do evil for no reason. The book is sewn on both sides, so the only way to read the book is to tear it page by page, until you end up destroying it completely. Also, as the character does increasingly worse things and the events become more mysterious and darker, the pages of the book become more and more covered with ink stains. At the end of the book, the pages turn completely black and you can’t read anything from them. Both characteristics of the book symbolize the gradual destruction of the main character due to his actions.
