A series of book spines painted on a concrete curved wall, 24 ft high by 50 ft long.


The goal was to use the books to visually support the library.


The librarians had a lot of fun picking out the books with the intent of representing the wide range of books their patrons use.

Additional Information

Making paper patterns was a practical way to transfer the layout to the wall.
