A Compendium of Beautiful Libraries

Some great photos of library interiors from around the world here:

Librophiliac Love Letter: A Compendium of Beautiful Libraries
September 6th, 2007 Curious Expeditions

“Everyone has some kind of place that makes them feel transported to a magical realm. For some people it’s castles with their noble history and crumbling towers. For others it’s abandoned factories, ivy choked, a sense of foreboding around every corner. For us here at Curious Expeditions, there has always been something about libraries. Row after row, shelf after shelf, there is nothing more magical than a beautiful old library.”

(Includes the Beinecke + Sterling)

  1. Is there anything about this on Yale’s website? Couldn’t find anything – strange…

  2. Oops – somehow I commented on the wrong post – that was meant for the one about the Jaffe gift to YUAG.
