Reading Books That Don't exisit

Author David Barnett discusses the Invisible Library on the Guardian Book Blog.

"Last year I threw a (very well-attended, it has to be said) imaginary party round at my metaphysical pad where we discussed books that didn't exist outside other works of fiction.

Now, as is often the case with fictional things, these imaginary books have leaked into the real world, courtesy of the "illustration collective" INK..."

INVISIBLE LIBRARY***12 June - 12 July*****

Exhibition and Workshop
at Tenderpixel Galley from 12 June to 12 July.
Private View on 12 June from 6 - 9pm
Tenderpixel Gallery/10 Cecil Court London WC2N 4HE

The Invisible Library project will transform the gallery space into an imaginary library filled with books that have been alluded to in novels, but have never actually existed…until now.

Once selected the hidden novels will have their covers illustrated
by INK. The Invisible Library will ask best selling writers, cultural and musical figures, and gallery attendees to write the opening or closing page of a ‘hidden novel.’
Each book cover is not only the beginning of a story,
but also a personal journey and porthole into the imagination.
INK invited the literary foundation Real Fits to collaborate with workshops. Together, INK and Real Fits will host a programme combining illustration, creative writing, reportage and music.

The four-week schedule of workshops and events reaches out to a diverse age-range of individuals.
