Lost Lending Library 

Presented in 2018 as part of the Commonwealth Games and an in school project.
Role: Australian designer 

The Lost Lending Library aims to raise standards in literacy, speaking and listening through engagement with an unforgettable narrative that unfolds within the school.

A freelance librarian visits pupils at a primary school, where they discuss their favourite books and stories. A shared love of the book How To Live Forever by Colin Thompson and the discovery of a strange locked book leads to the mysterious arrival of the Lost Lending Library. At 814 floors high and with 402 spiral side departments, it is the largest collection of books in the world. The Library leaps from place to place, arriving where it knows it can find the most precious books of all time: new stories written by young apprentices of the library.
