Gorgeous Photos of the World’s Most Beautiful Libraries



Photographer and literary enthusiast Franck Bohbot captures the beauty of libraries in his photographs while travelling around the world. He is well known for his composition and colour, and immortalising 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.
