Literature versus traffic in Melbourne

A river of books overflowing into the physical pedestrian spaces and installed in the space allocated to cars, stealing precious space to the dense traffic in the area, in a symbolic gesture in which literature took control of the streets and became the conquerer of the public space, offering the citizens, a space (not as big as we would have liked) in which the traffic withdrew yielding ground to the modest power of the written word. luzinterruptus

One man's DIY lending library


Hernando Guanlao, known by his nickname Nanie, has set up an informal library outside his home in central Manila, to encourage his local community to share his joy of reading. The idea is simple. Readers can take as many books as they want, for as long as they want - even permanently. As Guanlao says: "The only rule is that there are no rules."

Cross-Ropes bookshelf



‘Cross-Ropes’ is a storage function with an expression mix of a hard and soft, using locally grown natural materials - ash wood and linen rope. One rope is pulled all over the corpus and a tightening mechanism at the bottom of the furniture makes it possible to retighten the ropes over time.

What does your bookshelf say about you?


Sharing your shelf is sharing yourself – showcasing the building blocks that have crafted your knowledge, personality, and identity. While the internet has long valued the voyeurism in sharing and viewing photos of beautiful books as objects, grand libraries as cathedrals of intellect, and bookshelves as marvels of design, I created ShareYourShelf.tumblr.com as a way to attach individuality and ownership to these previously anonymous assortments of titles. I also don't have enough time to visit everyone's living room, but that doesn't leave me any less curious as to the books there.

Aviary (Library for the Birds of Massachusetts)

"I’m very interested in surrounding myself with the stuff that inspires me. I’m an artist who gets a lot from things, and in that way I’m very much a sculptor. I really love the world of stuff. I know a lot of artists who prefer to have very Spartan lives. Their inspiration is very much in their heads. They like clean, white, empty New York kinds of spaces. But I really like the surprising juxtapositions when you put things together on the bookshelf and when you start to collect things."
