Books at the Tango Cafe

Books Made into Art...

This is but a mere observation, but at the Tango Cafe in Chicago, which I visited this spring, and where they have free Tango lessons at 3PM every afternoon on weekends, I discovered something interesting: books made into art. Specifically "door art." As you can see from these two images, the owners made the door look like a bookshelf! In fact, it was rather cleverly done. Some people turn books into doorstops, others...well, into "books." Though, in this case, their symbolic beauty was what was important! So go check it out. But more importantly, the Tango cafe offers free tango and some decent coffees and desserts. You'll have to pay for those. But it's worth it.
