Personal Libraries Library Reading No. 2

Publication Studio Vancouver

28 × 10.2 × 1.9 cm

Louis Schalk’s PLL Reading No. 2 takes the size of the shelves in the Personal Libraries Library and gives a personalized overview of the entire library. Different from a reader, a bound collection of related texts that aim to give either a comprehensive or particular view, this reading evidences a specific reading or journey through a collection of related texts: the Personal Libraries Library. The Personal Libraries Library is a subscription-based lending library located in Portland, Oregon. Currently, the PLL is creating mirror collections of the personal libraries of Maria Mitchell, Robert Smithson, Italo Calvino, Jorge Luis Borges, and Anne Spencer.

These readings have been created on the occasion of Portland2014.
