A book is an artifact of strict order. A compressed unit of information, a disciplined system, guided by the flowing determination of letters, words and rhetorical devices. During the process of reading, you experience a magical torrent of pictures, flavored by the spicy cascade of your imagination. All is strictly ruled by the words which the author put exactly where he wanted them to be; in order to create a working system of gears that follows a strict guideline. And this guideline is carefully designed, so careful, that it creates a masterpiece of literature.
As the book is such a dirty perfection, a unit of such cleanliness and progression, it seems to me like a sweet irony that all the books in this picture are stapled upon one another in such a careless mess. This illustrates how all these stories, plots and epic dramas, that are so nuancefully designed, are still only vulnerable parts of our natural world, no matter how immortally fascinating their artistic value may be.
The mess could also symbolize a swarm, where all these books are kept safe in some deep, deep, untidy corner of the library, where nobody will ever find them. They are safe from all harm and remain in company of all the other books, collecting the sweet smell of dust on their paper as time passes. Until, one day, some dreamer will grab one of them and read a page of unknown magic that has been silent for so long.

A very beautiful picture that talks to me in an interesting way.

I currently work in a bookstore and I can tell you that my manager would lose her mind if she came into the store and saw that. Not only is it a fire hazard but any of those stacks can fall on someone and then you have a lawsuit on your hands. Not to mention that you could never find a book you were looking for in that mess.

Good pic though^^.

This is so inspiring. I've used it in my literature blog in one of my aphorisms called libraries with references given. However it is in Turkish, so I've translated it for you to use in your blog.

"Her akıl bir kütüphanedir, her birey bir kütüphane görevlisi. En önemlisi hangi düşünceyi ne zaman okuyacağın veya henüz hiçbir kütüphanede bulunmayan düşünceleri ne zaman oluşturacağın. Ne yaptığını bilmeyen akıllar için kütüphaneler sadece labirentlerdir, ne yaptığını bilenler için cennet..
'Meo"

Translation:

"Each mind is a library, and each individual a librarian. What matters is when to read which of these thoughts or when to establish new ideas not existed in these libraries. For those unaware of what they are doing, libraries are just mazes, for aware ones-however-just heaven.."
 
Something like that ;) thanks for your inspiring work.

I live near this bookstore and my mom knew the owners. After over 30 years of "Going out of business" they finally went out of business. :O The owners were helpful about getting books from difficult spots.

Actually it turned into another book store. But it's so sparse and clean it's barely recognizable. Very hipster. I can't imagine that one lasting long (the town really only makes money during its tourist season, which is basically the month of October). So..mehbunneh icon17
