We have the new edition of A Humument in the shop where I work, but I didn't know there was a website for it. I'll take a look.

Aren't those photos great?

I've got a copy of The Humament. It's gorgeous work.

Yeah the photos are certainly good.

And I might just have to look around for the non-virtual "A Humument".

Tequila Mockingbird is a site I love - and that is where I found this strange but appealing book sharing idea -

would it work in Australia . . . .naaaaah.

Maybe it does?
I love that concept, and first saw it a few years ago when I happened to be googling a park in Melb.Apparently a book had just been released in this otherwise obscure place.
