(2017 UPDATE: The above link no longer goes anywhere, so I’ve removed it. And, as it turns out, this is not the work of Peter Root, although he has worked with staples–see, for example, his staple city–but the murals are by Baptiste Debombourg. You know what–I probably should have just rewritten this entire post, but oh well.)
