Another network related book work. Electrolibrary (this is the website part of the work) by Waldek Węgrzyn is a book that connects via USB to a computer to control a website. The work was designed for his diploma thesis at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland.

The content of the book is Waldek’s diploma thesis discussing phenomenon of a book as an inteface. The text contains number of references to different works, but the major inspiration is the manifesto “The topography of typography” published in 1923 by a graphic designer El Lissitzky which has also influenced the design of the book.
