We invited ten authors who are active in areas that transcend genres such as mystery, science fiction,
and fantasy, and had them work together to produce an anthology of short stories on the theme of books.
 
Twenty-four different book covers were developed for the anthology,
using binding and cover designs by members of the Society of Publishing Arts.
 
The resulting covers altogether made use of twelve types of fine paper,
and a variety of bookbinding methods, including Bradel binding, hand bookbinding, and custom binding.
 
Please come and enjoy a labyrinthine world created through books—the charm and appeal of paper books
brought into being thanks to wonderful book designs and fine paper.
