The Big Book visits the Big Library (19-21 May) (UK)

The Big Book visits the Big Library (19-21 May) (UK)It may already be home to more than seven million books, but Cambridge University Library is to host one of the world's biggest books for three days this month. Visitors to the Library on those days can let their imagination run wild with a huge 2.2 metre high, walk-in book, placed at the front of the Giles Gilbert Scott designed building as part of an innovative art installation. The Big Book, entitled Imagine, is a leather-bound wooden sculpture that invites the 'reader' to step inside and write their own individual answer to the question: "What do you imagine?" The work of artist Diana Bell, the Big Book will be on display at the front entrance to the University Library, on West Road, from 10am-7pm Thursday 19th and Friday 20th May, and then 10am-5pm on Saturday 21st May. The project is sponsored by the Library and by Cambridge University Press
