An innovative installation has been created from thousands of books to launch the new Booksellers Tokens campaign in the lead-up to the busy Christmas gift-buying season. The installation, featured inside the Auckland Domestic Airport, consists of over 1,500 real books and weighs more than 375kg, standing at a striking 1.8m tall.
The campaign uses famous literary quotes and images to celebrate the fact that no other book voucher is accepted in as many bookshops throughout New Zealand, as a Bookseller Token. The books spell out one of the campaign taglines ‘To be accepted in 350 book shops or not to be’, pictured with the famous skull of Yorick, from Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
The Booksellers Tokens installation will be hosted at the Auckland Domestic Airport until Monday 6 December 2010.

Forget what constitutes a 'book'. What will be the new 'bookshelf'?
What concerns me about the literary apocalypse that everybody now expects — the at least partial elimination of paper books in favor of digital alternatives — is not chiefly the books themselves, but the bookshelf. My fear is for the eclectic, personal collections that we bookish people assemble over the course of our lives, as well as for their grander, public step-siblings. I fear for our memory theaters.

I designed this a few years ago, and with the help of my saavy father, bent, welded and painted to put this together. There are also adjustable wood blocks that help in changing and arranging the display to fit my mood or lifestyle at a particular time.
