Party has created Bookü, a book customisation system that allows you to become a character in various famous stories (whose copyrights have expired). So far the titles on offer include Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Anne of Green Gables, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde.

Finally, you can place a photograph of yourself on the back, and then order your own unique copy of the book.
And once you’ve got over your own ego trip, you can also start creating books using your friends and colleagues’ names too, and create the perfect seasonal gift:
