Un-bought, unloved, and used books need a home too. Sandman’s Book Company, an independent bookstore in Punta Gorda, Fl., found an artistic way to recycle them.
Sandman’s created the Bridge of Knowledge, as reported by a family friend.
The bridge (#BookBridge) was built in 2013 out of thousands of books that were slotted to be pulped — a.k.a. destroyed. Rather than “kill” these books, Sandman’s decided to build a Roman style bridge out of them in the store, according to their website.
Below you’ll find two photos taken by a family friend, Louise.
