That’s one big book (Press-Citizen via Library Stuff)

The University of Iowa Libraries has a new book in its collection — a 100-volume, 10,000-page, 2-feet-thick book of poetry. 
The book, “Poetry City Marathon,” written by Iowa City poet Dave Morice of Dr. Alphabet fame, is the culmination of a 100-day poetry marathon this summer.
From July to October, Morice wrote 100 pages of poetry daily as part of a UI Main Library exhibit about the history of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, the Actualist Poetry Movement and the celebration of Iowa City being named a UNESCO City of Literature.
The final product is 10,119 pages, which was bound in a single volume by Bill Voss of the UI Libraries Preservation Department.
