I'm only a fifth or a quarter the way through the photos on the link, have to stop back here and say, oh man, what an incredible gathering of photos.

And, the links at the end of the article are interesting too...
I'll also be interested if these or other folks ever do a "modern" library compilation.


I saw a favorite in the "added on" list, Michelangelo's Laurentian Library in Firenze; wiki link here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurentian_Library
