If you've ever dreamed of embarking upon a "grand tour" of the world's most magnificent libraries, consider this spectacular 10"x13" coffee-table book your travel guide. Arrayed across its pages are breathtaking photographs of the Laurentian Library in Florence, Italy, designed by Michelangelo for Pope Clement VII; the Black Diamond Royal Library of Denmark, built to appear as though floating on water; the library of El Escorial in Madrid, which served previously as a monastery and a royal residence; the King Fahd National Library in Saudi Arabia, its exterior inspired by the symbol of a woman's veil; and forty more palaces of the written word. Accompanied by brief captions written in English, French, Spanish, and German, the architectural marvels celebrated in Libraries are outshined only by the staggering scope of the literary treasures within.
