“From among these masterpieces, the books are not for reading, but meant to be looked at and enjoyed“, Tomoko Takeda says on her Behance profile.

Each piece’s design is related to the contents of the story itself. Natsume Sōseki’s I Am a Cat, for example, is illustrated with a scalloped cover and a pop-up kitten, while Daniel Keyes’ Flowers for Algernon was carved into layers depicting a delicate blossom. In translating these famous novels into relevant visual works of art, Takeda explains, “I made books not to read, but to enjoy looking at.”
