The "Reading Europe: European culture through the book" exhibition is brought to you by The European Library and the national libraries of Europe. This online exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view some of the hidden literary gems from the national libraries of Europe. Twenty-three countries have selected nearly a thousand works for the public to peruse. Visitors can discover everything from 18th century English bestsellers to the lost interiors of Russian palaces, all presented in an innovative and multilingual form.
"Reading Europe: European culture through the book" also comes complete with curatorial information from each participating national library, in English and their official languages. With many books in their manuscript or early edition form, the exhibition is an interactive window on a world of wonderful books.
