THE NOVEL CHANDELIER
To mark the launch of their eBooks store and the Kobo eBooks reader Whitcoulls has unveiled a grand and striking hanging installation at Auckland's Britomart Transport Centre. Approximately the same height as a two-story building the Novel Chandelier is made up of 1000 books representing the number of titles the Kobo eReader can hold.
I was impressed although my photo does not really do it justice.
Do have a look if you are in Auckland's Downtowm area. It will be there until the evening of 3 June.
As a matter of interest I gather that Whitcoulls has grossly underestimated demand for the Kobo selling out on the second day they were on sale. More in 7 -10 days.
