Literature vs Traffic: 10,000 books fill the streets of Melbourne

Welcome to a book lover’s paradise. The streets of Melbourne have been installed with 10,000 discarded books, overflowing and filling in empty public spaces with pure, serene literature. The lovely pages were lit up with LEDs to create a scene for the modest power of the written word. On the last night of the one-month installation, visitors were offered to take home the overflowing books, and even some passerby cars were gifted with these. This ephemeral installation, by Luzinterruptus, reflects the wonder of books and its grand balance of words and imagination.
