Book installations

The Art of the Book. The Book as Art. Books as an Art medium. Book installations.

Not solely regulated to be something to be read, books can also be used in art.

The current exhibit in the Gallery at Frances Morrison Library includes a book installation by Monique Martin.

In London, part of the London Festival 2012 (and the London Olympics) is a book labyrinth. Created by Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo, this book installation of 250 000 books, encourages the audience to wander through the labyrinth, discover new emotions, stir creativity and bring to light emotions. Wish I could make it to London to see it!

Here are two youtube videos showing the labyrinth:

Now I’m wondering what other book installations there are or have been?
