The Captivating Beauty of Libraries Around the World

New York-based, French photographer Franck Bohbot documents the breathtaking beauty of libraries in his ongoing series House of Books.

Endless shelves of books run along ornately decorated walls beneath arching ceilings, creating strikingly symmetrical scenes. Rows of desks, chairs, and lamps invite readers to sit and lose themselves in a quiet world filled with rich words, the soothing rustle of pages turning, and the comforting smell of ink on paper.
