“Lampyridae” at 57th Street Books

Finally! Here are some images from our current installation, Kelsey Hoff’s poem, Lampyridae, at 57th Street Books.

As we mentioned before, we are a little behind schedule, so you still have plenty of time to come see this fantastic window display (thanks to 57th Street Books for the thematic selection of books and surprises) in person. We’ll be sharing more documentation soon, but please enjoy these images in the meantime.

Installing “Cables” at RoscoeBooks

Here are a few images from this morning’s installation at RoscoeBooks (including Carley entering the ultra-top-secret password into our display).

We carefully gaffed our extension cord over the bookcases, which took longer than it should have because we kept getting distracted by all the books in front of us. If you like literature, then you’ll definitely want to stop by and browse for yourself!

We’ll be sharing more photos of the Caroline S. Knickmeier’s poem, Cables, soon, so check back.

Another Night of “Lambent”

Given the full moon, it seemed like an appropriate time to photograph Lambent again. That’ll make sense to those of you who have read the poem, which will stay up at Women and Children First through the end of the month.

If you’re in Chicago, then go out and read Lambent, by Chicago writer Laura Knickelbine, under the full moon for yourself. Otherwise you’ll have to wait another week for us to archive it online.

“I am solar” at The Armadillo’s Pillow

Here are a few shots of Eric Shoemaker’s poem, I am solar at The Armadillo’s Pillow in Rogers Park. We will be going back to document the installation further, but the dynamic reflections combined with the goings on within the store certainly made for a fun photography challenge.

You have three weeks to view this piece, so stop on by and share your own photos with us using the hashtag #ledpubchi

August’s Installation at The Armadillo’s Pillow

Our August publication, I am solar by Chicago writer Eric Shoemaker, is up and running at The Armadillo’s Pillow. Shoemaker suggested that his piece reside somewhere in Rogers Park, and we were elated when one of our favorite bookstores agreed to host our LED display. The Armadillo’s Pillow always features excellent window displays, so we are especially proud to be included.

You can come by and read I am solar anytime, but if you want to browse through a great selection of used and uncommon books, as well as art, jewelry, and even coffee (!) then you should stop in during store hours:
Sun-Fri: 12:00-8:00PM
Sat: 10:00-8:00PM

The Armadillo’s Pillow is located just North of Loyola at:
6753 N Sheridan Rd.
Chicago, IL 60626
