'Jardin de la Connaissance,' by landscape architect Thilo Folkerts and artist Rodney LaTourelle, is an amazing art project that features thousands of stacked books, with the odd mushroom growing out between the books.

The art installation is part of the International Festival des Jardins de Metis in Quebec, Canada, that continues on into the fall season. The books are treated as walls and flooring, and even sinking into the earth to provide seating for visitors. 'Jardin de la Connaissance' is a pretty incredible and interesting art exhibit.
