This is the first page from the book The Black book you just don’t touch

“Dear reader,

how do you tell a story that never happend and has never been told? Do you make it up? Nah, that is too easy.

What you do is that you make the story happen and if it happens enough, the story will tell it self. When you are sure that everyone knows the story is the point when you pull the rug under their feet. You tell them that the story never happend. Some will hunch in shame and be silent, some will protest in pride and say that IT DID HAPPEN! But just wait them out, they too will be silent. When everyone is silent the story has untold Itself. See how beautiful that is? Take heed, for that is not the end, the most beautiful part comes here. Now is the perferct time to tell everyone that the only reason why the story never happend is becuase it IS HAPPENING and the only reason why it was never told is becasuse it IS BEING TOLD.

Dear reader, do you see the beauty? Do you see the danger? Know that you have been warned for if you turn to the next page of this book doom will rain.

Sincerely yours,



  1. Paradoxal and paranoid! Hmm I’m guessing that the “v” is for von…? Diedrik Dongel von Europe!

    • The “v” is for Van or Von…or is it? Diedrik Dongel von Europe is close…or is it?

      After I had played with you and Anders tha whole day I came up with this paradox when I was about to sleep. I couldn’t fall asleep because I was trying to solve the paradox. The more you think of it the more confused you get, a good thing I guess in this context.

      A question to elaborate on: What do you think would/could happen if you, or Torulf, turned to the next page in the book?

  2. I like it, it makes me think of Escher´s many paradoxicly impossible and yet so seemingly simple drawings and prints. I would intuitively expect the story to untell me if I flipped the page:

    • Thanks. And yeah, it is very much like escher and I like your take on what happens on the next page.
