Curious Expeditions’ Librophiliac Love Letter

Bibliophiles: bookmark this link! Librophiliac Love Letter: A Compendium of Beautiful Libraries.

One of my favorite blogs, Curious Expeditions, has written what may be the definitive blog post for library lovers. I’ve only been to four of the libraries on the list, but I was at one of them just today, so it was a timely post.

There are definitely more beautiful libraries in Europe, but I’m excited to pop over to Georgetown and see the deliciously steampunky Captain Nemo Riggs Library. Can’t wait for a giant squid to swim past those portholes.


I posted previously on the Real Gabinete.

More good library stuff and links here.

    Aw, jeez. (Scuff shoe around in the dirt.) Thanks! Hey by the by, you should check out the National Museum of Health and Medicine in DC. They have over 24 million specimens, including the bullet that killed Abe Lincoln and the ghost white mummified head and shoulders of a girl who died naturally in the late 1800s and was embalmed using an arsenic-laced formula illustrating the preservative powers of arsenic.

    Ahem… if you are interested in that sort of thing.

    Also M wants me to write that she loved your post on the Huntarian… why she didn’t just write a comment herself, is less clear.
