there is a certain amount of impropriety involved in showcasing religious
screeds tracts under the title of “bookporn”. I acknowledge this & apologize in advance for blasphemy.
Koran from circa 1700. UNBEARABLY HOT. why do we not make books like this anymore? the only reason I can think of is that it is constantly at a much greater risk of damage, due to torrential salivation that will immediately emit from those who lay eyes upon it.
Korean Tripitaka (1236 AD). carved and assembled with infinite reverence — the oldest intact version of Buddhist canon in Chinese script — 6568 volumes in total. does this not send you into spasms of ecstasy? if not, you are clearly soulless.
