In July, Italian artist Massimo Listri released a book of photographs that featured the most beautiful libraries from around the world.

The chosen institutions, revered for their historical value, architectural relevance and preciousness of the books they keep, are standalone works of art.

For those lucky enough to visit these design marvels, spending a whole day at the library doesn’t sound so bad!

Scroll down and let your bibliophile side marvel at the beauty the likes of which only these libraries can offer!
