Maybe it’s the scent of old, dusty hardcovers that lures us in, but there’s something inviting about a library. We’re not talking the little one down the street as much as we’re talking about the legendary ones around the world. While this book isn’t a scratch and sniff, meaning you’ll have to look elsewhere for that glorious smell, you can take a visual journey to these far-off libraries when you flip through. Massimo Listri: The World’s Most Beautiful Libraries is the latest Taschen tome that shares stunning images and informative stories of its subject. Visit Alexandria and make stops at Trinity College, Florence, and plenty of more places along the way. At over 660 pages, this coffee table book will take you to all the amazing libraries still accessible around the world.
