Never Enough Books

I can’t think of a more appropriate way to camouflage unsightly electrical transformers. The Library Place Apartments, adjacent to the Everett, Washington Public Library have just added this wonderful installation.

It’s called the “Book Stack” and it stands 8-feet-tall and 12-feet-wide. It is composed of fiberglass and comprised of seven books that were “chosen to acknowledge themes for urban renewal” says developer Craig Skotdal. Titles included are: A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, Main Street by Sinclair Lewis, Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka and Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.
