I always enjoy articles about libraries and this one is about an exhibition about a tour the artist made along the Silk Road. Looks like a nice trip.

She didn’t take pictures of any monastery libraries. Here is one I took a few years ago of the Fontenay Abbey in Burgundy, founded in 1118. This little niche makes me aware of the scarcity and value we once placed on books.
