There’s a tower of 30,000 books in Buenos Aires to mark the 2011 World Book Capital: all genres, all languages, all cultures.
Says the Guardian:
The top may not reach unto heaven, but the Argentine artist Marta Minujin’s 25-metre tower is made of 30,000 books in languages from all over the world. Built in San Martin Square, Buenos Aires to mark the Argentine city’s naming as 2011 World Book Capital, the artist suggested that in 100 years people will say ‘there was a Tower of Babel in Argentina … and it didn’t need translation because art needs no translation’
And not an e-book in sight.
