The LibraryA Catalogue of Wonders
A LOVE LETTER TO LIBRARIES AND TO THEIR MAKERS AND PROTECTORS.
From libraries without books, like the songlines of the first Australians, to the library of Alexandria, the Bodleian, the Folger, and even the fabled libraries of Middle-earth and Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose, Stuart Kells unlocks the bookish places that continue to capture our imaginations.
The Library: A Catalogue of Wonders is a fascinating ride through the unexpected histories and secret treasures of these hallowed collections.
