Tower of Lincoln Books

You can’t do this with e-books.

Soon to be on display at the newly-constructed Ford’s Theatre Center for Education and Leadership in Washington, DC, this 34-foot pillar of literature includes over 15,000 unique titles about the United State’s 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. The museum is set to open before President’s Day.  [H/T to Clippings via Colossal]

    I have plenty of Lincoln books, but one stands out: George McGovern’s brief biography from Time’s American Presidents series of 2008. It’s autographed.

      I am sure he would have been happy to sign your Kindle. :-)

    I’ve seen many claims that such and such a topic is the most written about.
    But 15,000 has to be the record.
