Helen Friel, The Imp of the Perverse
"A short story by Edgar Allan Poe, ‘The Imp of the Perverse’  discusses the imp inside all of us that leads us to do things we know we  shouldn’t do. Each page is perforated in a grid system with sections of  the text missing. Readers must follow the simple instructions to tear  and fold specific sections to reveal the missing text. Books are usually  perceived as precious objects and this destruction is engineered to  give the reader conflicting feelings, do they keep the book in it’s  perfect untorn form? Or give into the imp and enjoy tearing it apart?"
want. so badly.
