Case bound, 1968 edition of "A Case of Need" by Jeffrey Hudson [aka Michael Crichton]; published by The World Publishing Company [New York]. This book has been cut through with a jigsaw, perhaps in the shape of a flower. A hole has been cut through the middle, connected by a line through the book to the spine. In the spot of the hole, the front and back covers are missing, while the text inside remains suspended inside. Signed and dated by the artist.
