The Eudaemonium is a living sculptural book that grows as people contribute to it.

This project was commissioned by City Branch and designed in partnership with Planit-ie Landscape Architects.

The 13-foot wooden and bronze book stands in the square outside Altrincham Library as a symbol of a community’s hidden treasure and acts as a physical marker within the landscape to encourage people to collect and share routes to well-being with one-another.

There is a hidden locked bookcase built within the spine of the sculpture, which houses the compendium of recipes and remedies or routes to well-being.

The title 'Eudaemonium' is an invented word derived from the Ancient Greek concept of eudaimonia or happiness gained through ‘human flourishing’ (aka wellness of mind and body).
