Or, more correctly Elogio de los libros, the name of this sculpture by Chilean artist Benito Rojo. This 4mx4mx11m iron and steel monument to books was built ahead of World Book Day in 2006 and sits in the Bellavista bario of the Chilean capital, Santiago. Much more about the sculpture is here (Spanish only).
Today’s Pic du Jour was taken one year ago today. Time flies like an arrow on steroids.
