Those books look wonderful ... I'm reminded of a couple of AskMe questions expressing related interests: innovative book designs and books that are entirely unsuited to e-readers.

Wow, this is so inspiring. I've lost some artistic focus and now my head is ready to explode.

That was a very nice article, though I wish the little book descriptions at the end would have included the designers' names.

I've worked with a radical book designer and it really expands the horizon of what's possible. I now look at books in a different way.

The designer names are important because what makes these books interesting in the context of the article isn't the content or the subjects, but how they are designed. The people responsible for that should get full credit. It's only in Dieter Roth's case, where the subject is the designer, that credit is given. That's annoying.
