Book forest - The first public bookcase in Berlin



The project
Book forest - The first public bookcase in Berlin

Project duration
01. November 2006 - 30. June 2008

The project adopts the idea of putting up a bookcase in a public space, in which people could release their used books to be picked up by others. This way of free dissemination, called ‚bookcrossing’, is by now a worldwide movement organised in a central database (www.bookcrossing.com). Registration of books enables following their travels through the world and communication about the books.
