      In Chemin-des-Dames, a memorial library may be found encased in a series of catacombs, while in Memorious, the living have themselves become an oral record of literature. The rules of Linearis mandate fidelity to a book till its completion, while Dermestis Lardarius houses books in a state of half-eaten incompleteness. Journey further into this world, and you will find libraries taxonomized by smell, composed of marginalia, etched in ice, and forged in nightmares. 'Invisible Libraries' captures the sensuous, enigmatic and aesthetic world of books and libraries. Taking a cue from Italo Calvino’s 'Invisible Cities', the authors explore bibliophilia, especially in the way it manifests itself via our love affair with libraries.
