What could be more boring than a dusty old library? Take a look at these amazingly beautiful libraries to learn just how exciting architecture can make the most mundane.
this is my heaven ^_____^
Be still, my heart.
Ultimately my dream.
A larger collection of library pics than another site I just stumbled upon. Both are great :)
And not a SINGLE book about UFOs...
Beautiful books, beautiful libraries
It's a cruel irony that the single instance of these beautiful libraries I've managed to see in person (the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris) was book-free at the time. Damn renovations!
I'm disheartened that an equally beautiful Parisien bookroom - the Bibliotheque Mazarine - isn't pictured. Perhaps the patrons - unlike me - actually noticed the "no photographs" warning at the entrance?
What? Library porn with no Trinity College, Dublin, Long Room?!? It was the model for the Jedi Library for Pete's sake!
Never too much library porn.

Give me a book and I'll lose myself in someone's imagination.
Give me a library and I'll swim through the chanels of civilization.
