Here is a treat for those of you who love books and libraries and old buildings as I do. Check out Librophiliac Love Letter: A Compendium of Beautiful Libraries from the blog Curious Expeditions.
How jaw droppingly magnificent are those libraries! Not only are they stupendously beautiful buildings - they have books in them!
Of course, I was very pleased to see the State Library of Victoria got a mention, even though the photo doesn't capture the magnificence of the domed reading room. It's a bit hard to squeeze so much magnificence into one photo, I suppose. No doubt all the libraries have to be seen with your own eyes to fully appreciate them.
