  1. Where’s Godot?

    The Most Beautiful Library Book Ever Published
    I love libraries and I have a nice collection of coffee table-sized books on libraries and this one is hands-down the best. The paper is thick and glossy. The photographs are amazing. The binding is top-notch. There is not a lot of text other than the great essay by Umberto Eco, but it is easy to get lost in all the photographs. The book measures 12 inches tall so it fits perfectly on a bookshelf. Honestly, I would have gladly paid more for this wonderful book. I recommend this book without reservation.

    Great book to view, not read
    I like all libraries from the book.wish to be there to watch with my own eyes

  3. A voracious reader

    Certainly some of the photos in this book are gorgeous – but there are way too many photos of things like desks and shelves, which really detracts from the beauty of the book.

    Es un libro con fotografías geniales sobre un tema que me apasiona: las bibliotecas.
