Photographic Homage to U.S. Public Libraries

thepubliclibrary_dawson24

This past spring, Princeton Architectural Press published The Public Library: A Photographic Essay by Robert Dawson.

Brainpickings recently published a lengthy review by Maria Popova – lengthy partly because her review includes multiple samples of Dawson’s photos, like the one above.

The review includes links to the title at Amazon.com, which includes excerpts from other reviews  – all of them, like Popova’s, uniformly positive.
