Giant painted bookcase

Blog

Dutch street artist Jan is De Man, in collaboration with Tattoo and graffiti artist Deef Feed, have painted a massive bookcase on the side of an apartment building in Utrecht, Netherlands. The Trompe l’oeil mural features a three-level bookcase — one for each floor of the building — featuring a selection of both the artist’s and the building’s inhabitants favorite books.

This giant bookcase has books for all tastes and if you pay close attention to other titles, you will also find books by the artist’s themselves as well as a black book with a playboy rabbit. ‘All local residents and those involved have been allowed to hand in their favorite books and we (Deef Feed and I) have incorporated them into this mural,’ said Jan is De Man on his webpage.
