The 56 Broken Kindle Screens book gives a unique glimpse into one of the main pitfalls of owning an e-reader: a damaged E Ink display. While the Amazon device happens to provide many more pros than cons, especially when it comes to increasing people's reading pastimes due to convenience and portability, this book acts as sort of a playful reality check.

Created by Sebastian Schmieg and Silvio Lorusso, the 56 Broken Kindle Screens book is filled with 56 photos of broken Kindle screens. The book "presents an interesting and visually arresting commentary on what it means for the physicality of the electronic reader when its life-cycle as a working device has come to an end," as observed by The Verge.
