Doug Beube's The Grand Design (1996). "Using the original title, 'The Grand Design,' by Franz Josef Strauss, portions of the book's printed matter are excised by drilling out all the words one at a time, a process that displaces the text's narrative content. . . . Each page is both a palindrome and palimpsest, a white veil through which the underlying page is glimpsed," here. & Beube's "A Void: Consonants and Vowels (after Georges Perec)" (2006), (below) here. More of Beube's book art here, here, and here.

On a somewhat related note, "A Perec Paper Plane" from Siglio Press, with text appropriated from Georges Perec's "A Page," here.
