Illuminated Books

Beautiful art installation by Korean artist Airan Kang features bookshelves filled with illuminated books.

LED lights inside amazing book-shaped sculptures were programmed to continually change brightness and colors. Glowing books represent real books that have inspired the artist. [Airan Kang’s book on Amazon]
