Art and much much more!

World’s most beautiful book?

I haven’t heard of many new books that can drill a hole in your pocket. And it is precisely because of this, when I came across this one, I couldn’t resist sharing it with you as I am sure you will not have come across such a rarity anywhere else. This book, which translates as, ‘the most beautiful book in the world’ weighs 24kg not taking into account the wooden casing that it comes packed in. Wondering what it has on the inside that makes it so heavy and expensive at the same time? Well, this is a book of art dedicated to Michelangelo, and it comes with paintings on the inside, based on themes adored by Angelo himself ever since he was a child. And everything in the book has been inscribed on pages of marbled gold. A limited edition book, only 99 copies would be up for grabs at $135,205.
