The Last Library, a Repository of Unwritten Books


Ward Shelley has an art installation opening tonight at Spaces Galley, 2220 Superior Viaduct, Cleveland, OH 44113 216.621.2314 featuring 4,500 books that have never been published, possibly because they’ve never been written.

Ward accepted title suggestions from online folk, printed up faux bookspines with the titles, glued them to strips of wood, and mounted the book spines on the wall like a library.

Here are the 80 titles I submitted. Don’t know how many were used.
