Book Wasteland

This is a really amazing set of photos and you should take a look. To me books are still precious, even in our digital age (maybe even more so because of the digital age). There is a whole litany of commentary you could make about schools, learning, society, modernity, etc. but I prefer to have the pictures speak for themselves. However, I'll send this link over to The Deputy Head for comment, he is much more of a wordsmith than I am.
