Christmas Tree of Books
About five feet wide at the base and eight feet tall, it is composed of 1600 hardcover books, none of which were harmed in the making of the tree! The librarian said that the books, mostly duplicates and discards, were treated respectfully--no cutting to fit.
You can see more pictures and a video of construction of the tree at the library's Polish language website

Thanks to American Libraries for bringing this to our attention.
