"Depero Futurista (also known as the Bolted Book) is considered one of the avant-garde masterpieces in the history of the book-object. It exemplifies all the Futurist innovations: witty typographical effects; the use of colored inks and decorated paper; the brilliant idea of dynamo binding, making the book seem like a machine."  — from The Artist and the Book in Twentieth-century Italy(Museum of Modern Art, 1992)

The Kickstarter runs through March 19, 2019.
