Photojournalist Travels To Capture Stunning Images Of The World’s Most Beautiful Libraries

French-born, New York-based photographer Franck Bohbot has been traveling the world since 2011, searching for the most beautiful libraries on the planet for his ongoing series House of Books.

From Paris to Tokyo, these magnificent centres of knowledge and learning have been a beacon of light and learning for centuries. Some of the libraries are sleek and modern, others are ornate and historical. But one thing they all have in common is that they are all breathtaking.
