It’s raining books

Oct 01

Once upon a time in a land far, far away…a quaint Swiss town close to France, in a charming place called Romainmôtier there was a used book fair and a book-loving artist named Jan Reymond. Jan wanted to ‘give the unsold books a last life before they were thrown away. So he decided to create artistic works throughout his town following each book fair to do just this. Each year Jan creates something different and interesting. I have found pictures for the last five years. Let me share from newest to oldest!
