Underground New York Public Library

Underground New York Public Library

"The Art of Loving," by Erich Fromm

I just found this totally innovative bookish website today and I love it!  Created by photographer Ourit Ben-Haim,  she describes Underground New York Public Library this way:

The Underground New York Public Library is a visual library featuring the Reading-Riders of the NYC subways. This library freely lends out a reminder that we’re capable of traveling to great depths within ourselves and as a whole.

I’m Ourit. This is my current photography project. I’m fascinated by how we apply ourselves to stories and discourse. In so doing, we shape who we understand ourselves to be.
I’m just pleased to see that she is able to find so many riders reading the real McCoy and it gives me hope that e-readers haven’t taken over the world!
