Books are earthquake proof. Fallen Books is a book project that brings together images of toppled books housed in seismically active libraries. The photographs, often taken by librarians, are laid out as a chronological index of libraries in the aftermath of an earthquake and include earthquake names, locations, dates and the relative intensity of the earthquake as measured by the Modified Mercalli Scale. The accompanying captions are quotes from newspapers and librarian’s notes. (from their website)
