Want to lose yourself in some good books?

Then do visit this giant labyrinth (in London), constructed from 250,000 remaindered, used and new books.

From the site Colossal, a blog on Art and Visual Ingenuity, “…this enormous book maze [was] designed and built by Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo (and over fifty volunteers) at Southbank Centre. The stacked and twisting labyrinth [is] based on a fingerprint belonging to writer Jorge Luis Borges…”

Oooh, I’d be so tempted to pull out a title that caught my eye.

All pictures from  http://www.thisiscolossal.com, and lots more where they came from. Their other posts are quite stunning as well–this is a brilliantly curated site, and one whose aesthetic I love.
