A Novel Slant on Books

10 Feb

In at least one municipality here in Australia, the National Year of Reading 2012 is kicking off in an innovative style.

The public library in Kogarah, a suburb of Sydney, N.S.W.,  is in the process of recycling its excess books into decorative features for what promises to be a stunning display.

The highlight of this venture- a sculpture for the library’s foyer-integrates more than two thousand books, glued and screwed together. Others will be made into art works, some suspended.

I wonder how many authors ever envisaged their works breathing new life in a such a striking way?
