Austrian National Library

Vienna, Austria, 2022

Located in the Wiener Hofburg the Austrian National Library is considered one of the most beautiful historic library halls in the world. Commissioned in 1722 by Charles VI, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, the historic building was constructed by the famous baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach and his son Joseph Emanuel. The grand hall measures 77.7 x 14.2 meters with a central dome of 29.2 meters high. The iconic pairs of columns divide the wings and represent the Pillars of Hercules which symbolize claims to power and Constantia et Fortitudine, the motto of Charles VI. With more than 12 million items in its collection, the Austrian National Library is the largest library in Austria and owns one of the most valuable book collections in the world with items dating from 1501 to the present day. Therefore, we are particularly proud that the Austrian National Library has included two publications by Christian Voigt in its collection.
