Amazing Book Waterfalls In Spain, Each Made of 5,000 Books #art #design #fotographic #fotografia
Spanish artist Alicia Martin used thousands of old books to create amazing book waterfalls that pour out the windows and straight into the streets. She is well known for her massive book installations across Europe, however Martin’s most recent series, called Biografies, are based in her hometown, Madrid.
Each book installation was made of approximately 5,000 books and installed in the three of Madrid’s historic buildings. The heavy weight is supported by a special metal framework that’s hidden inside, however the books’ pages are loose and free to rustle in the wind.
