This display, called Idiom, was found at the 2006 Beauty and the Book exhibit in The Isreal Museum.

Beauty and the Book focuses on the visual aspects of books, and suggests reading them as one "reads" a work of art. Like art, books are a mixture of matter and spirit, manual labor, thought, and creativity. They have shape, color, dimensions, substance, and other qualities, and the concept of beauty emerges from the different combinations and interactions of all these qualities.
