This page contains pictures from various libraries that I visited. Sometimes I shot the building, sometimes the interior and on other occasions the only option was to shoot close-ups.
Let’s start the series with this picture of the reading room in the Public Library on 5th Avenue in New York.
Obviously the people that were best placed to create large private libraries were rich printers. Here is a shot from the ‘small library’ in the home of the Plantin-Moretus family in Antwerp, Belgium. A picture from their ‘large library’ can be found here.
The web is filled with fine pictures of libraries all around the world.
