— In-game text

The Book Painting is one of Guertena's unnamed paintings located in the Orange Area of the Dungeon in the game Ib. It depicts an open, purple book. The image is set against a light gray background, surrounded by a black inner frame and an ornamental, blue outer frame. The canvas is small.


In the Orange Area, the painting is located in the rightward, dead-end room. It is second in the row of paintings. The canvas's color is a hint to the Truant Seconds Hand code; the blue "2" is the second digit in the code.

In the True Guertena Exhibit, it is on the wall by the entrance, with the same order of paintings.


  • The book's text is likely referring to the Stubborn Twins sculpture in the Orange Area. When the area turns nighttime, the flowers fall asleep, and will no longer kill Ib.
