"Earlier this year, HarperCollins announced new limits on e-book lending for libraries: digital books would only be allowed to circulate 26 times before they expired and would have to be replaced.
In response, I created a physical book which dissolves through successive readings. I began with the text of Borges’ The Library of Babel, repeating the story 26 times. With each repetition, one letter of the alphabet is removed, until finally all that is left are punctuation marks and numerals." - Benjamin Shaykin
