The Universe Bound: Astronomical by Mishka Henner

We are all well aware that the reading of books can open up new worlds  but who knew you could fit the entire universe in a set of 12 books.

Mishka Henner does just that with Astronomical; twelve hefty volumes representing a scale model of our solar system from the Sun to Pluto with the width of each page representing one million kilometers!

The Sun pops up in Volume 1 and Pluto closes out the set on the last page of Volume 12 and there is a plethora of darkness in between and just like that the entire universe is contained between the covers.

The first 10 sets retail for £100 and each is printed-on-demand.  Each volume is 5.5″ x 8.5″, perfect bound with white interior paper (50# weight), black and white interior ink, and white exterior paper (100# weight).

Here's a video preview:
