My friend Irene in Hong Kong emailed me the picture above. Times Square in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong is exhibiting the work of Mike Stilkey. The book sculpture above is 24 feet tall and covers the entire ground floor of the 12-story major Hong Kong shopping centre. Stilkey is well-known for his painted book installations. His uses mixed inks, colored pencils, paint, and lacquer painted across piles and piles of books.
