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. Book Temples is a declaration of love for the book itself, a book for book lovers and for anyone who believes in the power of ideals.
