Library graffiti

Interesting concept...not sure that it has legs as a serious literary collection. Quinn Dombrowski has taken over 700 images of graffiti in the Regenstein Library at the University of Chicago.
'Song lines, love notes and maths problems' appear on the walls (presumably in the bathrooms...it doesn't specify) along with political statements, cultural asides and even a poll about the Ancients. It begs the question, who even thinks to take a pen into the loo?

Who does take pens into the bathroom??? I love that bottom one though. Hilarious!

Actually, I prefer to work it out with a pencil!

Ok G...laughing...:) Bust your ankle at the top of a snowy mountain at the end of the day and lose your friends in a foreign country just once - and it makes a girl pack a little more into her kit next time!
