These Fishy Books Were Printed Entirely Using Squid Ink

The creative minds at 'Today Designers' created the 48-page ‘Naar Inkt Vissen,’ a publication that seems fairly normal — except that it is printed in squid ink.

Naar Inkt Vissen (meaning, 'Fishing for Ink') tells the tales of the sea, created with just over a litre of ink collected from squids. 700 of these unusually fishy books were crafted and bound with fishing wire, so that it was even more on theme.

Other than eating it, this seems like a novel use for squid ink. However, it probably will not replace the way books are traditionally printed. As novel as this concept seems, the designers note: "It smells, stinks and reeks. We are talking about a penetrating fishy smell here."
