Whether you've always wanted to find out what libraries and librarians of ages past looked like, or you simply find yourself in awe looking at photos of interesting libraries (and librarians), I'm sure you're going to enjoy my offering for this installment of The Analogue Reader!
Fellow bibliophiles, it’s time to spill: we all have felt that desire to be a librarian at some point in our book-loving lives, or at least try it for a day…right? Okay, let me be the first to raise my hand and say yes — and I still have that on my “Try Everything Once” list.
Not everyone pays a visit to libraries after finally finishing and graduating from school, and on an even a sadder note, many opt to just download eBooks instead of building their own libraries at home. However, the fact remains that libraries have been and will always be fascinating places, and the sight of books by the hundreds all neatly stowed in shelves will always have ardent bibliophiles gawking at them.

There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
