Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl to bring bookish friends together. A new topic is posted each week.
There’s books everywhere in this store, from the pictures it’s so cozy.
I wouldn’t go to Paris without paying this store a visit because of its reputation, but I also don’t love crowds.
Famous, big old library that looks stunning and have six million volumes.
The most stunning library I’ve ever seen. A fact taken straight from wiki is that the monastery was founded in freaking 1074. The library hall was built first in 1776 and the buildings have together seven out of this world beautiful ceiling frescoes.
This modern-style library is completely new, and there’s been some books added to those shelves since the pictures. I’m into architecture as you might’ve noticed through this list and I really like the combination of older more classical elements and the white, modern and minimalistic style. The colour of the wood is the perfect choice and I absolutely love the curves in the balconies.
The most famous library of all time, the Great Library of Alexandria that burned down and so much knowledge was lost. This bibliotheca is more of a museum in honor and memory of that. It also houses eight million books, so.
It’s the library with the most items in the world, with over 150 million items and still growing. I would want to see Leonardo Da Vinci’s notebooks, a special version of Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland, the whole of King’s Library collection and the Magna Carta.
As someone who’s not british, this round library is still so iconic. I really like old libraries at universities that has such a distinct style and house a lot of knowledge and material for researchers, but also need to be accessible to everyday and students.
Amsterdam is on the top of my list of places I want to go, and this bookstore seems cozy and well-liked.
It’s just aesthetically pleasing, which makes sense from the library of an art university.
