While we’re gearing up for the dragon-slaying awesome that is said to permeate The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, it never hurts to take a peek back at the past. Part of Oblivion’s allure lies in its massive game world, a world made even larger by the utterly insane number of well-written books scattered around the land. Even more insane, one enterprising DIYer gathered all of those documents and created a real-life tome comprised of every book Oblivion offers.
Reddit user notadoctoreither – interesting name, that – printed out all of the books in the game on high-quality paper, then finished the deal by encasing the wordy goodness in a spiffy leather binding. The results are abso-freakin’-lutely amazing. Notadoctoreither says the project took him about a month and set him back $130, which isn’t too bad for all he got. Check out a heaping plateful of pics over at Gamefront.net , or if this sounds like the kind of project you’d like to wrap your grubby Eleven-gloved paws on, head over to Megaupload, where notadoctoreither has conveniently left a .zip file of all the books in Oblivion along with the fonts used in his real-world tome .
While we’re on the topic, what where your favorite Oblivion tomes? We’re partial to “Palla” and “The Lusty Argonian Maid,” even if they were carried over from Morrowind.
