unwritten Library of Unwritten BooksEver think about all the books that could be? There are all the books you could make, or books you think your friends should make, or that one persons life that would make a great book.

The Library of Unwritten Books is like a collective of all those books that could exist, but don’t quite yet. Short interviews were done with people about books they would like to make (or were in the process of making) and the transcripts were published in limited edition mini books.

The touring book-box, aka the Library of Unwritten Books, brings the mini books to towns far and wide, on display at pubs, libraries and even launderettes.

  1. Hi there

    Did you know that ‘The Abortion’ by Richard Brautigan (lesser known San Fran Beat Writer) is all about a library of unwritten books? It was written in the early 60′s.

    Keep up the good work

  2. What a wonderful idea ~ ‘Unwritten Books’ . My mantra as a personal historian is that everyone has a story to be told which easily translates into the ‘unwritten books’ category!

    Books will survive. As tehcnology after technology comes and goes, books will survive. Meanwhile there is no doubt that current technologies are useful.

  4. Hi Julie -
    The higher the resolution the better your images will come out. BookSmart will automatically notify you if the resolution of an image is too low to print.
