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.
