Utrecht by the Book

Over the years, I’ve been very lucky to have visited Utrecht many times, I even had the opportunity to stay for a week about 20 years ago. Sadly, most foreign visitors to the Netherlands overlook this wonderful university city with many of the very same attractions that makesAmsterdam a tourist magnet. Recently street artists Jan Is De Man and Deef Feed worked with local residents to create a marvelous book-themed mural.

They turned an apartment building into a trompe-l’oeil library of huge books. The residents of the building gave the two artists the references for their favorite books. The  resulting painting highlights 49 books from 7 different languages. There are books in  English,Polish, German, Turkish, Arabic, Dutch and French.
