Libraries pictured in our minds are somewhat simple, orthodox rooms with books lining up shelves and a few people scattered and reading in silence. While that description would be generally true, libraries can also be architecturally and aesthetically pleasing structures that house a wealth of human knowledge. In the book The Library: A World History, James W. P. Campbell and Will Pryce take a look at the history and development of libraries through civilization. A huge attraction of the book happens to be these magnificent photographs of libraries by Will Pryce.
