Argentinean artist Pablo Lehmann (previously here) has been developing his installation The Scribe’s House (La casa del escriban) for two years, and it is scheduled to debut at Art Basel in Miami this December. In the meantime, the NYC Rockefeller Center Anthropologie store has a variation of The Scribe’s House on exhibit. Composed of browned and torn book pages, the studio-like apartment installation has a collapsed bed, bookcase, and picture frame all made with thousands of book pages cut into strips and hanging from the ceiling, walls and covering the floors as well as in the shapes of the collapsed furniture. By cutting and layering, Lehmann creates texture and dimension.

Anthropologie is also selling a limited edition beautifully bound boxed set of photographs of the Scribe’s House installation, complete with white gloves for handling.

You can see photos of the more limited Anthropologie installation here and you can buy the boxed photos here.
