Louis De Cordier – Biblioteca Del Sol


60
​The artist Louis De Cordier set out in 2010 to construct his Biblioteca Del Sol: an underground repository of thousands of books and seeds, to which he continues to add. Far away from volcanoes and nuclear power stations, the library is intended to preserve knowledge for future generations, even after an apocalyptic disaster. This little book documents the surroundings, building and use of the Biblioteca Del Sol. It includes a text by the author-poet Maarten Inghels together with Plato’s famous Allegory of the Cave.
 
The publication comprises an exclusive woodcut by Louis De Cordier, printed, signed and numbered by the artist.
