Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library photographic set

Wednesday, March 03, 2021
The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is one of the world’s largest libraries devoted entirely to rare books and manuscripts. It is located in Yale University where it functions as its  principal repository of literary archives, early manuscripts, and rare books.

The building was designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and later opened in October 1963. Its design includes a six-story glass-enclosed tower of book stacks, holding approximately 180,000 volumes, and large “windows” made of translucent Vermont marble panels in a Vierendeel truss of steel clad in granite. The marble panels protect the collections from damaging direct sunlight while absorbing and diffusing the exterior light in warm hues on the interior.

This incredible photography set is the work of Peter J. Sieger.
