This bronze arch is sculpted to resemble books stacked atop each other, and measures 10' by 7' by 18". The books were cast from molds of real books, and one can actually make out the pages and even a few titles. It was completed by Jonathan Snow in 2008 as he finished his M.F.A. in sculpture, and was placed up on the brick wall to keep it safe from pedestrian traffic. This had the coincidental result of making it a great place to get a framed photo of the mall fountains and the university's clock tower. A dedication plaque was placed here as a student memorial in 2019, and it reads:

Jonathan Snow

our fellow Eagles no longer in flight.
