Though the Kansas City Library Parking Garage in Kansas City, Missouri was completed in 2004, we had never seen it before. Designed by cdfm2 architects (now apparently 360 Architects), the book spines measure approximately 9 meters by 3 meters and are made of signboard mylar. The shelf showcases 22 titles reflecting a wide variety of reading interests suggested by Kansas City readers and then selected by The Kansas City Public Library Board of Trustees. Clever.

A bookshelf quilt! You could embroider the names of your favorite books on them. Would be a great hand-me-down for your children (the books would tell them a bit about you).
