Library graffiti at the University of Chicago

Song lyrics, lovelorn notes and math problems appear on the walls of the University of Chicago’s Regenstein Library, all graffiti left there by students. In some, like the photo above, a chain of comments was left that may not have been seen by the original defacer — but probably served to amuse those who came after. Sometimes the graffiti is literary.
