A celebration of banned books

Tuesday, 12 September 2017

I was in Hannover, Germany, last weekend but now I wish I had been in Kassel instead. Then I would have been able to get my hands on one of the 100,000 books from this stunning installation, the Parthenon of Books. The installation was part of documenta14 and intended to spark debate about censorship in literature.

As book-lovers and book-supporters, I thought you'd like to hear the story of the Parthenon and catch a glimpse of some of the banned titles:

How many of these do you have on your bookshelves?
