Necrophagous.

For this piece I  tracked the development of a maggot, from the fly laying the egg to the maggot forming a pupa and emerging from it as a fly itself. The book got eaten away by said maggot more and more as it went along; and also began to show stains of decay. I buried it in a shallow grave for a week to make it more authentic.
