Infinity Bookcase Stores Finite Amount of Books, Is Infinitely Cool Anyway

Illustration for article titled Infinity Bookcase Stores Finite Amount of Books, Is Infinitely Cool Anyway

This Infinity Bookcase is almost as cool as the amazing stairs bookcase that made me want to move to London*. Created by Dutch artist Job Koelewijn, it is supposed to represent the power of learning, or the infinite number of books that you are never going to read, or something like that. Whatever. Definitely a solid #2 in the Gizmodo's Fetish Bookcase Ranking. [Knaw via Neatorama] *Yes, I was lying.

The bookshelf is infinite, and an infinite number of books, but not every book is good, thus there is a finite number of books. The population of good books in the bookshelf, compared to infinity, would be near zero in comparison. Since infinity is close to nothing in an infinite bookshelf, the book you probably read (and liked) is probably the product of your deranged imagination?
