HIGHLANES-SHELF-01

In April 2014 The LFTT Library ran a Fundit campaign to raise funds to build a new modular storage/shelving system which could adapt more easily to each new environment. Thanks to overwhelming support the campaign was a success and as a result the library will now live longer and have a wider reach to new audiences. The new build has proven great in protecting the collection in transit, as well as making fantastic modular sculptural material. Thanks to all our wonderful funders for supporting the project, we couldn’t have done it without you.xxx

broadstone01In the summer of 2011 The LFTT Library was provided with its first official residency at Broadstone Studios, Dublin. Working between a ground floor studio space and the large dining hall of the historic 1840′s Art & Crafts building at 22 Harcourt Terrace, Dublin 2, a number of artists were enlisted to help ‘edit’ the library. This was a timely and somewhat absurd process which added to the shape of the archive and introduced us to its character, while clarifying little.

10.BROADSTONEJuly 13 2011. I’m really delighted with all the work we got done this evening and a
really great start to the project. Many thanks to all who attended.
For those that weren’t able to make it we have started to devise
idiosyncratic categories of division for the library such as “gravity
defying” “obnoxiously dogmatic” and “on singing”. We have 25
categories to date and feel free to suggest more, we have app5000
books in all so up to 100 categories would be feasible.

Categories so far; 1. Beautiful Illustrations. 1a. Books with Decorative panels. 2. Dedications. 3. Books with remarkable foreign objects inside them. 4. Door-stoppers. 5. Inheritance Books. (Empty) 6. Happy Books. (Empty) 7. Dogmatically Offensive Books. (one book) 8. The Sublime. 9. Exotic Places. 10. Books We Like The Colours Of. 11. Hideous Books. (Empty) 12. Books about Singing. 13. Anti-gravity Books. 14. Adventure Books. 15. Books On Arguing. 16. Poetry. 17. Literature. 18. Important Men. 19. Art and Architecture. 20. About Translation. 21. Sex. 21a. Catholic Marriage. 22. Smelly Books. (Empty) 23. Ireland. 24. History. 25. The Fransicans. 26. Books With Great Covers. 27. Nature 28. Politics & Economics 29. Saints 30. Rejects 31. Science 32. Boring Religious Books 33. Window Books
