Anyone who loves books has a fondness for libraries, but few of us have a sense of their infinite variety. Diane Asséo Griliches has photographed all kinds of libraries, from the grand reading room in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris to the humble remodeled train depot that serves as the library in Cleveland, Mississippi.

Accompanying her exquisite duotone photographs is a wise and witty essay by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Daniel Boorstin, who was Librarian of Congress from 1975 to 1987.
