Of course New York City hosts some of the best museums in the world. One that I find particularly interesting is The Morgan Library on Madison Avenue. Yes, this building is from J.P. Morgan of financial fame. It is packed with stunning examples of the printed word in many forms that will impress and amaze. Not to mention the facility itself. Take a look at the ceiling here:
As well as the tapestry above the fireplace. This is a magnificent interior that deserve serious study itself. Here’s one of my favorite items from the collection, a manuscript from J.S. Bach.
Seeing something written in composer own hand leaves no doubt as to authorship or original intent. And here is one of Isaac Newton’s original notebooks.
There is plenty more to see, including visiting collections and things from the vaults. Best to check in here several times a year to see what’s on offer. Enjoy.
