Those of us from the pre-Internet Age fondly remember the joys of a great set of encyclopedias. Before the web if you needed to know about cuneiform writing or what the capital of Namibia was, you turned to the Encyclopedia Britannica, World Book or Funk and Wagnalls.
When the iconic Encyclopedia Britannica ceased publication after 244 years, book artist Guy Laramée began his Adieu project to pay tribute to the great books. Utilizing a full 24 volume set, he created a fantastic landscape ranging from mountains to grasslands to desert. I think that encyclopedia fans will agree that Adieu is an extraordinary salute to a lost literary institution.
