Day 299 – Books and art

book art turner contempary gallery margate

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

This is actually an art installation in the Turner Gallery in Margate. They are actually books, although you are asked to not remove them from the shelf for obvious reasons. It is the first thing that greets you as you walk into the building and the only part of the building you are allowed to take photos in. We did look round the rest of the exhibition but I found the vast majority of it to uninspiring.  This whoever is cool and funky and really knocked you in the eye as you walked
