The Benefit of Sharing

Amsterdam LibraryA whole bunch of books is not remarkable in itself.  However, when the collection represents the lifetime assemblage of art history texts, as is pictured above from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, it serves as a beacon for those who share a passion for the arts.  There is a fine line between hording and assembling.  Hording is for our own benefit, cataloging is for the benefit of others.
