JUXTAPOSED: Religion is the first in the Juxtaposed series of curated bookshelves by Mike and Maaike. I love the angularity of the silhouette and the way the inverted position of the books creates movement in a cross section of planes.

"5,084,000,000 people, 5,360 pages, 3,700 years, 243 countries, 7 books, and 1 shelf. For the first time, the world's most influential religious texts [the Torah, Bhagvad Gita, Bible, Qur’an, Confucious’ Analects, the Tao Te Ching and the Discourses of the Buddha] are brought together and presented on the same level, their coexistence acknowledged and celebrated."
