Book 4 by Lucas Samaras at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

 

I wasn’t able to open the book as it was in its display box (to protect the book or perhaps to protect us).

 

However, the gallery label explains that the book contains a series of short fictional works written by the artist.  It goes on to say that “each thick amoeba–shaped page contains surprises, such as pop–ups, pockets, interlocking layers, foldouts, and hidden pamphlets.”

 

Of course, you have to get the book open first.
