False

Settling beside this bookshelf in an airport cafe thinking of escape hoping for an interesting quick flick only to find the books are plaster casts.
Nice touch!

  1. Is the art the artifice in the airport? And do these contain a cast of characters to imitate life? Or is this a shrine to the book to kindle nostalgia in a technological age? As they are false, perhaps it’s true that life imitates art more than art imitates life, but that would be a wild and cynical speculation.

  2. I’m not sure what would be worse: if the books were real but had been stuck fast to prevent any leakage, or if they were coffee table books for effect, or indeed in remembrance of the life we once knew.
