More than any other object, a filled bookcase reflects the identity of its owner.
At the moment of purchase this Ready Made reflects the collective intellect of centuries of literature: the Top 100 of all time, everything you ought to have read – but never got around to.
Filling the case means replacing classics by a personal selection. Great works become bookends to personal favourites.
