Talk about your book porn! Gaze on this:
The man in the photo is Jeffrey Martin and the camera you see behind him was used to take nearly 3000 shots in this room over the course of five days, which were then assembled into a 360º panoramic view of the inside of this library, the Strahov monastery library. The whole shebang weighs in (if pixels can be said to weigh anything) at 283 GB! When he left at night he left the camera there, all set up, saying for once his camera was the least valuable thing in the room. That can only begin to hint at what’s housed here. To say ‘rare books’ is a gross oversimplification. If I get busted for putting the photo up, it’ll go away, but go read the article on Wired.com and check out a few more photos, along with a link to the final, clickable, zoomable product.
