Gorgeous Photos of the World’s Most Beautiful Libraries

Photographer and literary enthusiast Franck Bohbot captures the beauty of libraries in his photographs while traveling around the world. He is well known for his composition and colour, and immortalizing every day scenes such as swimming pools, city streets, bars, museums, train stations and barbershops. You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover—but you should judge these 10 libraries by their beautiful architecture, art, and gardens as much as by their book collections.
