House of Books – Libraries are boring? These photos say otherwise

“The often overlooked beauty of libraries is finally being unveiled by photographer Franck Bohbot.”
We hate libraries. Those bad days in the college, when we were bound to be locked in one of those places, we couldn’t help but hating them. Where is fun in there, eh? You can’t even do a little chit chat, let alone playing a music. And with our unconditional hatred, we never even look at those vintage buildings properly. No matter how much you disagree, most of the libraries are beautiful with their vintage and classy architecture. How do we know? By seeing the pictures captured by Franck Bohbot – the French photographer who has undertaken a project named “House of Books”, only to capture libraries around the world. Till now, he has completed only Paris and Rome, and we like always, brought in some of his best works for you.
