A sculpture illustration piece to commemorate and honor of the many diminishing paper back books that are getting tossed away and being overthrown by technological e-books. The image portrays an envisioned book heaven, created using recycled old book pages, where all old books go after they die and are tossed away. It is a plus being able to view complete books on technological devices such as iPad‘s, phone and e-reader‘s and saving some trees, but on the upside it also loses the smell of old books, the personal and tangible feel that paperback books have.
