Local artist Jon Stine gave us a peek at his newest art installation — but he made us promise not to tell where it's going, not before the big reveal next month.

He did tell us this, though:

The installation consists of thousands of unwanted books. Being unwanted is a good thing in this instance, because to create this piece, he had to cut many of the books in half.

Here's a piece of the installation, which Stine will start installing on Apr. 10.

The installation also includes card catalogs Stine built for the installation.

So where is it? Well, it's not a grocery store, we can tell you that. And, sadly, it's not in any of our homes. He swore us to secrecy, but that doesn't mean you can't guess...
