Rapunzel is the first in a series of fairy tale books that attempt to convey some feeling or aspect of each story with including any actual text from the story itself. I like this idea of the book as a physical translation of the story. I immediately thought of a marionette binding for Pinocchio or an apple core binding for Genesis. I was also impressed by the sheer effort it must have taken Mr. Yuen to create the piece. Besides, it looks like an awesome book to curl up with.
