For the love of the library

Library by Jason Lamotte

Jason LaMotte was very fond of his neighborhood  library in Houston, Texas. 

As LaMotte tells the Guardian:

I have strong recollections of my neighborhood library in Houston, Texas in the US. I can recall the layout, where certain sections of books were, the smells, and the sounds. And it still carries a magical feeling for me, this special kind of sanctuary full of knowledge, full of stories, all covered in a sense of quiet respect and revery.
 

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, LaMotte went to work and the result is beautiful homage to the power of the library. 

Here’s a look behind the scenes:
