Collections of books have always symbolized culture and knowledge of their owners. In most languages, the word "library" refers to both the collections and the buildings housing them. From the ancient-Greece libraries to the French national library, each time, each culture reinvented this concept, transforming libraries into mirrors of civilizations.
This book is the first publications recounting in one volume this history around the world. Architecture historian James W.P. Campbell and photographer Will Pryce travelled around the world together, studying eighty libraries. Arranged in chronological order, the chapters study the particularities of each time, from Antiquity to 20th-century modern librairies, and discuss their future in the digital era.
