A Brief Non-Book-Cover Post
I'm normally very reluctant to post about non-book items here, but anybody who has been following the end of the world book posts on this blog really, really needs to go and look at this site.
It's the collected work of a group of Russian photographers who roam the depopulated regions of the ex-USSR. They've found abandoned libraries, abandoned railways and stations, abandoned military complexes, even whole abandoned towns. The photographs are evocative and genuinely lovely: a real glimpse at what the world might look like if people disappeared.
