Beautiful libraries November 6, 2007

Filed under: Books about Books,Books all sorts,Miscellaneous — Kim @ 11:44 am

There are some amazing libraries all over the world, which most of us will never see in person. Luckily there is a website that has pictures of the best examples. Click here to see it. I can also reccomend the book ‘Libraries’ by Candida Hofer. I am proud to finally have this book in my collection. (Click here to read a previous post about this book.)

    The fantastic library of ‘our’ Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Thanks to Urbi for the link!

    That does look remarkably similar to the Harvard Coop (which is a bookstore, rather than a library) in basic design.

    Very pretty though. Are you familiar with Walter Scott’s library at Abbotsford?

    It reminds me of the Beauty and the Beast library!

    I would love to have one of these in my house. I would never have a reason for leaving!
