Take a look at the gun this woman is wielding. Sure it doesn’t looks like it could fire any ammo, but it still looks pretty badass. What if I told you it wasn’t a gun at all, but it was a custom-bound book? Libertarians Librarians, rejoice!

Yes, this impressive bit of hand book-binding is the work of Montreal’s Strikebooks Bindery. It’s designed to look like a full-size sub-machine gun, but is actually a functional writing journal.

Inside, of the leather covers, you’ll find 84 pages of high-end blank paper, along with black suede endpapers. It’s not exactly the most practical of places to keep your diary, but it’s definitely unique. Of course, all this meticulous craftsmanship comes at a price, with the sub-machine gun book selling for about $523 (USD), and taking about a month to build to order.

They also sell a smaller book that looks like a revolver, and it goes for about $240.
