Artists Silvio Lorusso and Sebastian Schmieg have photographed images found on broken Kindle screens and curated them into a print-on-demand paperback. The book, fittingly titled “56 Broken Kindle Screens” looks at the aesthetics of broken e-ink displays.

When the screen breaks on a Kindle, the content of the book collapses where images and texts overlap each other to form unique and interesting shapes and designs. Watch the video below to see some of the photographed broken screens.
