Rose Main Reading Room Ornament
"A book is a dream you hold in your hand." - Neil Gaiman
The New York Public Library's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth Ave and 42nd Street is one of the nation's great cultural treasures. Reading a book in its majestic Rose Main Reading Room is one of life's great pleasures. This ornament replicates the Rose Main Reading Room's unique details: its ornate wood shelves and tables, the iconic brass lamp, a lion bookend, and even the Dewey Decimal labels on the books.
Inspired by the Deborah, Jonathan F. P., Samuel Priest, and Adam R. Rose Main Reading Room.
