Friday photo: Doull Books

This unique bit of book sculpture is one of the attractions of the used bookstore John W. Doull, Bookseller in Halifax, or JWD’s, as it is fondly known by Haligonians. Although it may look like someone shot a cannon through the store, the installation was actually created using a table saw to cut through books that were glued and screwed together and then placed in the wall.
