Sunday Feature: The Lincoln Book Tornado

Last week, I learned that Ford's Theatre in Washington has a 34 foot display of books glued together in more-or-less the shape of a tornado. They call it the "Lincoln Book Tower." Details here. The architecture surrounding the "tornado" even vaguely resembles the wind flow around a twister. 

I guess what puzzles me is why they thought a tornado was an appropriate shape for a tribute. 

There were two presidents what were amateur meteorologists: Jefferson and Truman. I've never seen a reference to an interest in weather by Lincoln but I may be wrong. Readers?
