Libraries by Candida Hoffer

Found this on - it looks stunning and another book I can pass of as "an educational investment". Hee.
Write up on Cool Hunter website:

The newest offering from Thames and Hudson has an unexpected literary edge. The book is a photographic portfolio of the world's most magnificent libraries. Before you start snoring, we're not just talking about your school library, we're talking about true cathedrals of knowledge housed in some of the globe's most stunning period buildings, absolute architectural landmarks in their own rights. Libraries featured include the BritishLibrary in London, the Escorial in Spain, the Whitney Museum and the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York, the Bibliotheque
nationale de France in Paris, the villa Medici in Rome and the Hamburg University Library, among others. by Billy T
