Libraries

Reading-room

I am tired of my pictures. I wanted to show you some of M’s, but they are all on her camera. I was looking at Flickr, and saw this, which led me to this which led me to this. They’re the photos and the blog of a guy named Ilya Varlamov.

The blog is in in Russian, but just paste it in Google translate.

I love his pictures of libraries, and the colors seem so Russian to me.

Also the parquet floors and the very tall doors.

And I love this story of books hidden at the Polytechnic Museum.

Oh, and here is another story about books in the Russian State Library.

Oh, this, too! Very much like the Library of Congress.

Anyway. Interesting, isn’t it?
