Interesting Photo of the Day: Infinite Tunnel of Books

It’s a book lover’s dream, or maybe a librarian’s nightmare. Look closely: it’s not a deep well made of bricks, but rather a bottomless pit  . . . of books. But before you get a headache trying to figure out how somebody built that thing, rest assured it is actually the result of a clever bit of visual illusion. Housed in a library in Prague, the tunnel of books has mirrors at the top and bottom to give it the impression of extending endlessly into space.

The photo above presents a pretty seamless perspective — you can’t really tell where the mirror is; there’s so many books that it’s hard to detect where the visual repetition starts. To see how this installation actually works, check out the video below to take a look inside the tunnel for yourself:
