Book shed


From the back cover of a 1989 issue of Fine Homebuilding comes this gem for all lovers of the written word, a shed made out of books by sculptor Barry Holden in homage to the French writer and philosopher Denis Diderot (the official title is 'A Reading Room for Diderot'). The shed needed 2,500 books, built around a stud frame when Holden realised books alone make dodgy bricks. It is 10ft tall, 12ft long and 6ft wide.
Thanks to Eric Morehouse from eye-candy for this.
