Die schönsten Bibliotheken aus aller Welt
Libraries are so much more than collections of books. They are archives of knowledge, sources of inspiration, places of equal learning, encounter, and free education. At the same time, their extraordinary architecture represents the societies and eras from which they emerged. Büchertempel celebrates the world’s oldest, most extraordinary, and most ambitious libraries: from baroque palaces to UNESCO-protected adobe buildings to futuristic private libraries, this book explores the stories, architecture, and changing mission of libraries worldwide. Büchertempel is a declaration of love for the book itself, a book for book lovers, and for anyone who believes in the power of ideals.
