Mark Twain’s Adam and Eve’s Diaries is one of the most moving novels of the 20th century.
A well known Author with his extraordinary text needed a unique binding. This sophisticated binding demanded special form, materials and technique as well as an exclusive frame. The book was printed in a limited edition on art ribbed and hand made leather binding. Some of the books were edited in a new form of frame – book which could be hung on the wall. Only the book owners know how to take out the books from the frame and replace it. This new concept is backed by law with patent number 119400.
It has already won nine awards and prizes:

What is this extraordinary and intelligent text about? About what really matters in the world, about what can change the course of history, what can make people happy and at the same time depress them, what can inspire all human action. Taking a metaphor from the biblical story of the creation of the world, Twain described, extremely insightfully and with his proper sense of humour, how that first all-powerful feeling – the world’s first love – was born. The meeting of the first human beings, the forefather and foremother of us all, in the literary form of diaries, is an opportunity to show those subtle mental qualities that have distinguished men and women since the human race came into being on Earth and are as much a source of misunderstanding as of mutual fascination. Mark Twain’s perceptive, subtle and witty language makes the text a pleasure to read.
The book was printed in a limited edition on artistic ribbed paper and hand-bound in leather. Some copies have been published in the innovative form of a picture book, housed in a frame to be hung on the wall. However, only the owner knows how the picture book can be removed and reinserted for reading. This new book concept is legally protected (UP No. W119400).
