Decomposition Of Books

Detroit Public Schools once had a book depository. It's still there, but hasn't been maintained in years, and its once-educational contents have been ravaged by fire and weather, resulting in this blog post and this set of Flickr photos. It is haunting, and sad, but reminiscent of the "World Without Us" book or the Life After People show. On a small scale, without human intervention nature has started reclaiming this building from the inside out. (see also) Books, it seems, are both good for growing both smarts and nature. (via)
