What are the most innovatively designed books currently in print? Do you know of one that has a particularly interesting layout, perhaps using typography, photos, drawings, or layout in an unusual way? If so, what makes it so great? I am interested in learning about some fun new examples of design.

Innovative Books: I am looking to compile a list of the most innovative uses of the book format. Books that break the mould in their layout and design, perhaps books that use online systems to extend their content value or push their form into new places. I am most interested in narrative and theory, but any book that is interesting (artist books etc.) would be really appreciated. [more inside]

Here's one for the rare art book crowd, of which I am not a member. There is a book called The Complete Writings of Donald Judd. I know because the Seattle Library lent it to me about a year ago. Unfortunately, the book came due and so it was returned, and it has since dropped out of the library's catalog.
