This is Selexys Dominicanen.




It's a bookshop in Maastricht housed in a 13th Century Dominican church.




I think, after The Vortex Of The Weird (TM), it may be the loveliest bookshop in the world.




But I bet they still get people coming in with Liquid Skin all over them...

They can't be as beautiful as this bookshop. It's made me want to go to Maastricht, and it isn't often that you'll see me type that phrase.
There was an article about it in the Guardian yesterday, but it appears to have been removed from the paper's website. This is the cached Google version.

"They can't be as beautiful as this bookshop."

You wanna bet? I mean, the bookshop's up there in the top 20 or so, but . . .

Someone's done a book of photos of the world's yummiest libraries. Unfortunately it costs more than we can spend . . .

Two sites where you can see photos of beautiful libraries are:

http://www.boredstop.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=156

and

http://thenonist.com/index.php/thenonist/permalink/hot_library_smut/

These sites might be of interest to pastorbear and selkie, too, I'm thinking, so I'll repost this comment as a Reply to one each of their comments to draw their attention.

I visited the library at Alencon many many years ago - we had an exchange programme with a school there - but I was only about fifteen and it made not the slightest impression on me.
My favourite of all of these is Chethems Library in Manchester - very dark Satanic mills.
