The Library: A World History - 1st Oct 2016

For thousands of years books have been among the most valued objects we have, and we have built many spectacular buildings to home them. This stunning book by architectural historian James BD Campbell and photographer Will Pryce showcases some of the most impressive and important buildings in the world.

From ancient ruins to modern institutions, gilt and leather clad tomes to trusty paperbacks, the authors have visited eighty different libraries around the world. They weave literary history and architecture into a fascinating account of how our places of learning have changed over the years.

This would make a perfect gift for the devoted bibliophile or architecture enthusiast.
