Book Description

31 Oct 2005
Nobody photographs the splendid and intimate cathedrals of knowledge as beautifully as Candida Hofer. This superbly produced volume contains Hofer's famously ascetic images of the Escorial in Spain, the Whitney Museum and the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York, Villa Medici in Rome and the Hamburg University Library, among others. Umberto Eco contributes an essay on libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful tour of the world of books 29 May 2009
Format:Hardcover
This book is a real page-turner, unbelievable considering it's entirely filled with pictures. If a travel agent creates a world tour based on these destinations I'll camp outside their office overnight to book my ticket :)
