In book 1, there is an assortment of 36 kinds of papers each possessing different thicknesses, qualities, and weights. Each sheet is perforated, so people can actually tear them out and create sound experiences from the papers themselves. In the second book, there are only crumpling patterns on each of the pages that encourage people to imagine the actual sound.
