Magnificent Libraries 16 - George Peabody Library, Baltimore, USA
Magnificent Libraries 15 - Mafra National Palace Library, Portugal
Besides natural techniques of conservation for the books, such as the lack of space between the wall and the book (so it doesn’t create humidity), there are also a few bats that inhabit this library eating any insect that could destroy this invaluable treasure.
Magnificent Libraries 13 - Stuttgart City Library, Stuttgart, Germany
This library, along with The Reading Room of The British Museum, are my 2 dream libraries. The minimalistic clean edges and monochromatic white are so stunning!
Magnificent Libraries 09 - Kanazawa Umimirai Library, Kanazawa City, Japan
As much as I love huge intricately decorated libraries, there is just something irresistible to me about minimalistic designs in libraries with monochromatic themes and straight lines.
