Real-Life Harry Potter Textbooks?

Edith Kollath's 'Things' installation is comprised of a series of 'breathing' books. Each of these books opens and closes in a rhythmic fashion to mimic breathing. According to the video's narrator, Kollath had a terrible time getting these books past TSA officials at the airport.

'Things' by Edith Kollath reminds me of the 'Monster Book of Monsters' textbook from the Harry Potter movies, minus the teeth and bloodthirsty demeanor--a coincidence Neatorama has also noticed.
