Seems like some publishers have decided to take a different route in regards to thwarting e-books, downloaded novels and the like: luxury literature.

The latest piece of luxury literature making headlines involves publisher Kraken Opus and Indian cricket star Sachin Tendulkar. By infusing the pages of the book with drops of Tendulkar’s own blood, they have created 10 limited-edition copies to be sold at $75,000 each. That price tag alone can deem these novels as luxurious items, but it is the author’s blood which makes them truly unique. Stats for Extreme Luxury Literature Trending: Older & Chilly
