The librarian’s ‘Withdrawn’ stamp is like a silent slap across the face. A once loved volume is ostracized from the family home. Fortunately, books have many lives and move from one home to another, carrying the baggage of their former lives – inscriptions, stains, notes and other marks. Photographing withdrawn library books is one way to depict time’s relentless push forward.
