Lovely Libraries

March 2010

Must blog must blog.

I’m not really interested in how long a library has existed, but rather the long-patience it takes to accumulate a ginormous collection of books. They’re simply physical books, but knowing they all speak of some sort of knowledge reveals itself when a book is opened, sort of creates a magical atmosphere.

Again thank you Atlas Obscura for exploring such wonders.
