BONERS FOR BOOKS: SPOMENIK #1-26
A surprise afternoon thunderstorm and my neighbor's abandoned apartment provided the perfect backdrop for today's Boner for Book, "Spomenik #1-26", courtesy of an anonymous stranger. Spomenik is the name for a series of monuments commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 60s and 70s to mark the location of concentration camps and significant battle sites from World War II. The beautifully eerie, though largely neglected structures are the subject of photographer Jan Kempenaers's book.
