awesomeness, books


Last week ACS sent me a link to a Buzzfeed piece about the old Cincinnati public library. The library’s current iteration, which was built after its predecessor was torn down in 1955, is a nondescript, regular-looking building, but you guys—the photos from its heyday are take-your-breath-away beautiful. Just look at them. I mean…there are no words. Well, except one: love.
