Page-Turning Water Tributes
The Book Fountain is a Beautifully Classic Monument

The Book Fountain tribute in Budapest, Hungary, is a fascinating book monument. Featuring cascading water acting like a flipping page, the fountain is imaginative and beautiful. With a solid wood base, the line of water flips back and forth as a page would. As a monument to traditional books and classic literature, the fascinating fountain is truly an outstanding fountain.

In a world where the physical book has been challenged by the e-book, it’s interesting to see it fighting back. While many will (hopefully) never lose the ability to buy a beautiful book with real pages, the tribute is definitely meant to encourage literacy rather than a specific type of reading. With 1/3rd of American high school grads never picking up a book again for the rest of their lives, literacy and books are definitely something to be encouraged.
