It’s common knowledge by now that Donald Trump isn’t much of a reader.

That fact alone suggests he probably won’t get through a full read of Michael Wolff’s explosive, new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Fortunately, one talented individual came up with the perfect solution.

An artist who creates under the name HappyToast rebuilt the broad strokes of Fire and Fury as a pop-up book, using 3DS Max modeling software. He then shared each page of on Twitter in an ever-more-hilarious thread.

It’s not a word-for-word recreation, obviously, but for a president who gets his briefings with a side of bullet-pointed one-sheets, this is perfect.

Reach by email, HappyToast admitted to being unsure of how the pop-up book idea first came to him. “I’ve been ill for the last 6 days so it might have been a touch of flu based delirium that’s to blame,” he wrote.

He also had a few other ideas kicking around for the mock-up that ended up being cut, though you can probably use your imagination on all of these.

“I did have a few other pages noted down, a dummy (pacifier) being spat out of a baby’s bed, a nuclear button and something to do with bedtime water sports, but they got cut to keep things tasteful [and] in line with the book,” he wrote.

“I thought I’d wasted enough time already on a joke I really didn’t expect to go so well!”

Go well it did. This is the perfect companion piece for Fire and Fury.
