A new library in the UK has some awesome typographic tree sculptures.  There are 14 oak tree trunks, each with a different passage in a carefully chosen typeface.

I find the design of new libraries is usually striking and innovative; probably since libraries are seen as the repositories of creative ideas, the architects get to have a little fun with the design.   The interior of this library looks fairly generic but they’ve made up for that with the unusual sculptures!


(Sometimes I miss being in London, but looking out the window in this photo makes me realise that I don’t miss the weather.  It’s pretty nice to live in Brisbane and have summer for nine months of the year!)
