|A Bookshop within a Book|
Francis Bacon dreamed of an end of bookish learning. He would be keen on such real books, books which literally contain the reality he wanted to focus on. But then, there are books in this book! That surely would worry a philosopher who wanted to get beyond books!
Look at these shelves!

Emma calls it From Within a Book. She does a bookshop in less than a week. She does shelves, furniture, (upholstery), carpets, ladders, even the humans. This must be my scarf! And of course the books. All made out of books. And placed in a book. Mise en abyme? Enjoy more of Emma's work on her own site. Compliments to fromwithinabook at gmail dot com.
In Edinburgh, mysterious book sculptures are going on display, as the Guardian reports. Perhaps this is how books are fighting back against Kindle and co.
Thanks, Emma, for sharing your marvelous work!
