The Greatest Libraries in the World

Peter Dolkas
If the weather outside getting frightful isn't enough motivation to crack open a book, these striking images of libraries will surely do the trick. Architectural historian James Campbell and photographer Will Price traveled the world in search of the best of them. The result, The Library: A World History is not only visually remarkable, but also an informative history of the establishment. Indeed, you could get lost in this book. Just as you could in the libraries themselves.
