A giant maze of books! Genius! I’m adding this this art installation to the list of things we missed when we were in London, which only means we must schedule another trip (I wish!) before it closes on August 26th. (As with most things in life, once is never quite enough, is it?)

aMAZEme, built by Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo, was constructed with 250,000 books and the help of 50 volunteers over a five-day period. It’s over eight feet tall in places, and covers an area over 5,000 square feet, but I think we can recreate this for our under-three-foot kids in our own living rooms, don’t you?

Here’s a cool time lapse of how it all went down. Thank you, Amy, for sending this my way!
