a good read - libraries

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

On the heels of yesterdays look at some inspiring spaces, I found this book a while ago and it has been a coffee table favorite. The Most Beautiful Libraries in the World by Jacques Guillame includes the Library of the Institut de France in Paris, the Vatican Library in Rome, the Royal Library in El Escorial, Spain, and the New York Public Library.

i've wanted this book for the longest time but it's always so expensive!! Is it interesting too? I've flipped through at bookstores and it's just total eye candy for sure.

Agreed, I bought mine used. I make it a habit to buy used books, it is like adopting a puppy and you save so much. Half.com always has good deals!
