Artist Transcribes Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot by Hand

This is pretty impressive. Artist Kris Martin transcribed Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot by hand, replacing the main character’s name, Myskin, with his own. The 1500 page manuscript was created for his art show ‘Deus ex Machina’ in Berlin. No explanation was given as to why he chose this specific book. Whether you think this is a valid expression of art or not, you have to admire the dedication it would take to complete such a task.
