Video of The Walker Library of Human Imagination

Personal libraries can range from a pile beside the bed or extraordinary works of art and science. The Walker Library is the personal library of Jay Walker and it is a stunning collection that was built in 2002.

The Walker LibraryUnfortunately I can't seem to embed the video but this is something any book junkie will want to take a peep at. You can visit Walker Digital to view the video and more information about the library or visit filmmaker David Hoffman's YouTube channel for a bandwidth friendly version.

Even from a distance it is a stunning visual of one man's need to collect information.
