Beautiful Libraries


Thanks to @Londiniensis on Twitter for this wonderful link to the Curious Expeditions blog: Librophiliac Love Letter: A Compendium of Beautiful Libraries.

The photo above shows the Biblioteca Geral at the University of Coimbra in Portugal. They have included the old reading room of the British Library and the Duke Humfrey’s Library, at the Bodleian (Oxford University) though they missed the Radcliffe Camera which is another world-class venue for falling asleep after a good lunch - and reading scholarly books, of course. I only have a photo of the outside. (This reminds me to add some more Oxford photos to Flickr...)
