If you’ve played through Oblivion, you know just how many books are strewn across the land. Which means that the writers over at Bethesda put a lot of time into writing each and every one of them. Have you ever wondered what it would look like if you took every single one of those texts, printed them out, and put them into one book? Reddit user notadoctoreither wondered that very thing, and did what any good DIY’er would do in his shoes. He printed out every page and bound them himself.
We’re not talking about standard printer paper with a cardboard binding. No, he went all-out with some high-quality paper, and leather binding. The total cost of the project was roughly $130, and roughly a month’s worth of work. Half of that time was spent getting the text formatted for printing. He’s saved you this time by offering up the formatted text, along with the fonts used. You can download them here.
Don’t bother emailing him and asking to buy one for yourself. He has no intention of making more, though he may do something similar when Skyrim comes out. If you’d like to learn how to do this yourself, you can check out this tutorial, which he cited as his reference for the project. Seriously, this is one beautiful piece of work. notadoctoreither, I salute you.
