Giving a whole new meaning to “deskbooks”

Despite the popularity of online legal research, we still believe in the beauty and power of the casebook! Perkins Coie LLP recently remodeled its Seattle office and repurposed some of its print books into an amazing reference desk. We often think of case law as a pillar of the American legal system but this wonderful piece of art really brings that concept to life by using the books as the “structural and conceptual building blocks” of the desk.

Read more about the desk at the American Association of Law Libraries Spectrum blog and view more pictures of the books at the artist’s website.
