Lilienfeld Abbey Library, Austria

I love that clasp that holds the door shut. That’s one of the most unique features of this room. Not sure if those were common on doors but they were certainly used on individual bookbindings at the time.

A Home Library Perfect for a Rainy Day

Holy FUCK that scared me. I didn’t notice the… thing… in the center until like 5 seconds in. Then it hit me. Nicely done. I don’t know, I’ve always been camping so the woods at night just seem serene and still to me, especially
