34-foot tower of books about Abe Lincoln


Ford's Theater's Center for Education and Leadership sports a 6,800 volume, 34-foot-tall tower of (aluminum replica) books about Abraham Lincoln.

The majority of the titles are histories and biographies about Abraham Lincoln. Also included are books of Lincoln’s speeches, books of quotations or quips and one or two travel titles (i.e.: Indiana’s Lincolnland by Mike Capps and Jane Ammenson). Several children’s titles also are included, though not much in the way of adult historical fiction.

(Many sites report that there are 15,000 books in the pile, but that's not correct).

    1. “Several children’s titles also are included, though not much in the way of adult historical fiction.”
      So I’d say there’s room for it in there if they are including those categories..

  1. Dear BoingBoing,

    I feel I must protest the continued posting of book torture-porn that plagues this blog.

    Yours sincerely,

    Sgt Major Leftenant Bruce B. Biggleworth (deceased)

  2. Wonderful. I’ll just have a quick glance through this title at the very bottom… OH MY GOD NO!!!!
