National University Library, Ljubljana Slovenia

Like many of the buildings in Ljubljana, the national library was designed by Joze Pleznic, and he envisioned the outside windows to look like open books, while the inside would be like entering a temple of knowledge. The library is currently featuring an exhibit “The Black Art in Color: painted and printed images in Middle Ages Incunabula”. You can view several manuscripts from the 1400s, and then try your hand at your own drawing!
