A Japanese author wanted to give his audience the full experience of his novel by having it printed entirely on rolls of toilet paper.

This literary artwork is the latest from Koji Suzuki, who previously wrote The Ring. This time, he tells the story of a ghost which hides in a public toilet.

The new novel called The Drop, can be read in a few minutes as it only takes up nine short chapters. It's printed several times on each roll of toilet paper, each copy taking up 90cm. The unusual layout of the novel was not much for quality, but was the ideal way of producing a "horror experience in the toilet", according to printers Hayashi Paper.

The best part is, as it has dual purposes as a book-toilet paper, you can tear it right off and wipe after you're done!
