The Pen is Mightier than the Sword

2014

Made from carefully arranged vintage books for the reception space of Paternoster House, this installation honours of the publishing industry that once flourished in the area.

Hundreds of books of varied sizes, colours, and genres create a spiral formation, taking inspiration from the shape of the iconic dome of nearby St Paul’s Cathedral, which miraculously survived the war unscathed.
