Today we feature a masterful shot of Trinity College Library by Reuben Fields. Located on Trinity campus in County Dublin, this is the largest library in Ireland. The grand stature and architectural magnificence of this historic structure (the Old Library) has been expertly captured here by Reuben. The long room pictured is spectacular to witness and holds many old and rare volumes. As it maintains status as a copyright library, it is entitled to receive any published literature in Ireland free of charge. The fascinating and historic 'Book of Kells' is housed here. This manuscript was created by monks 1200 years ago at a Celtic monastery. The writings in the book are accompanied by beautiful illustrations and decorations. Visitors to Dublin can visit the Old library and Book of Kells at Trinity college and I would highly recommend it!
This print is available from €45. You can browse more of Reuben Fields fascinating photos here.
