Online auction house Paddle8 is gearing up for the sale of a new edition by Daniel Arsham, Fictional Nonfiction: Archaeology. The edition of 500 works will be available online in just a matter of days, benefiting The American Friends of Museums in Israel.

Arsham references his blend of art, architecture, and design, as well as his focus on past, present, and future in an eroding printed book that is Fictional Nonfiction: Archaeology. The fictional cast book arrives in sealed custom Arsham Studio packaging with art handling gloves and the numbered holographic authentication label.

This isn’t the first time Arsham has created a fictional cast publication, however. In January of this year he debuted an eroded “3019” issue of Vogue, and before that he gave New York Magazine the same treatment.
