125 Kilos of Books presents a selection of printed architectural works from the CCA collection dating from the fifteenth century to the present in order to provoke thought about what seems, at first sight, the most banal fact of any book: its size. With dimensions ranging from 10 centimetres to 1 metre, the works are explored through such themes as Buildings are Bigger Than Books, Theory is Bigger Than Practice, Size is Luxury, Mother and Children, Big Beyond Bounds, and Portable Computers.
125 Kilos of Books celebrates the designation of Montréal as UNESCO World Book Capital City for 2005–2006.
Curator: Gerald Beasley, Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library, Columbia University.
