The Library of Lost Books

The Library of Lost Books is a wonderful initiative which was launched at the time of the opening the new Library of Birmingham and is currently touring the country as a travelling exhibition. The concept behind the project is simple yet really amazing, the LoLB curator rescued old, unwanted and unloved books which were being disposed of and saved them from getting pulped then sent them to a wide and varied group of artists who work with books as part of their art practice to repurpose them into beautiful pieces of art.

Find out more about the different artists involved in the project here and read the blog chronicling the various artworks as well as the events surrounding the travelling exhibition.
