The Worlds LONGEST book is…. One Piece

Yep, and we’re not talking about how long it’s been running, or the fact there are so many individual volumes! The mad lads over at JBE Books have done a special collaboration with artist, Ilan Manouach, to join ALL of the first 102 volumes of One Piece into one gigantic book.

The newly released book is 21,540 pages long and weighs around 36lbs, so good luck carrying that around. This hefty prize however, will cost you as it is selling for 1900€ + shipping (about $1800 at the time of writing). This insane book is limited to only a 50 print run and is ALREADY sold out. The publisher at JBE books describes it as follows: “this sculptural object cannot be read or displayed in bookstores. It is literally the largest book in the world by far and can be admired as the materialization of an ecosystem saturated by media. ONEPIECE exists as an object of pure speculation.” I mean just look at how crazy the pictures are below and let us know – would you buy this thing?

About One Piece:

One Piece is a legendary Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump manga magazine since July 1997 and has been praised for its storytelling, art, characterization, and humor. One Piece has received many awards and is ranked by critics, reviewers, and readers as one of the best manga of all time. The Internet thrives on an unprecedented supply of unlicensed digital comics, and One Piece is as popular in printed form and in a variety of manga archives and online media aggregators. The series lasted 23 consecutive years and was serialized in 102 issues totaling more than 21,540 pages. It is still the most popular manga download today.

Several One Piece issues of the manga have broken publishing records, including the highest initial print run of any book in Japan. In 2015 and 2022, One Piece sets the Guinness World Record for “the most copies published for the same comic book series by a single author”. As of August 2022, One Piece had over 516.5 million copies in circulation in 61 countries and regions worldwide.
