Old libraries are magical places every book lover would love to come back again and again. Modern libraries evoke exactly the same feelings.
A talented Portuguese designer and illustrator André Chiote has created a series of gorgeous posters every book lover would love to hang on the wall, next to the bookshelf or above the bed.
The artist selected the most famous modern libraries from around the world and designed strikingly minimalist illustrations highlighting most characteristic elements of their facades.
In a series of posters, available for sale on Cargo Collective, you’ll see Aberdeen University Library, España Library, National Library of France, or Seattle Public Library.
