The smell of books may be vanishing

The smell of books may be vanishing. But one woman is cataloging it, book by book. “Rachael Morrison is an artist and a librarian who is currently working at smelling all the books at the MOMA library.”

Read more here - and see some examples of her olfactory notes. She certainly has a discerning nose, noting such elements as “smoke,” “under the couch,” and “armpit.”
