Facebook gets made into a real book

An artist called Laura Balboa has taken the Facebook concept full-circle, and turned the website into a hardback book.

The website was originally named "Facebook" after the books that some American universities would hand out at the start of the year to help students get to know each other better. Founder Mark Zuckerberg studied at Harvard, and built a site that allowed students to share information and photos of themselves.

Feisbuk, however, takes the idea back to its dead-tree roots, and includes printed pages with graphical elements from the website. The artist says: "people can draw a portrait of themselves, write their status, profile, info and wall thoughts".
