The Chained Library of Zutphen

I took these pictures during a visit to the 16th-century chained library of Zutphen, in the east of the Netherlands. It is one of three such libraries still in existence in Europe. Nothing much has changed here for 550 years.

Something about a library of chain-bound books is so very, very D’ni.

Carsten Peter, Hang Son Doong, 2011

At a mammoth 2.5 miles long, 330ft wide and almost 800ft high, Hang Son Doong also known as Mountain River Cave, is as high as 25 double decker buses.

…Well, I guess someone found D’ni.  That was easy.

I’ve had several people submit various links/versions of Hang Son Doong over the past few days, so I’m just going to reblog it because it is still AMAZING.
