Awesome story on Wired about a 360-degree panorama photograph that takes you inside Prague’s off-limits Baroque Library.

By the numbers:
868-year-old Strahov monastery library + 42,000 rare 18th century books + one fresco (45 feet above you, completed in 1794) + 2,947 photos + at least 111 hours’ worth of color correcting and digital stitching time = one stunning, 40-gigapixel, 360-degree image
On leaving his camera overnight in the hall, photographer Jeffrey Martin said: “That’s one advantage of shooting in an 18th-century library – my camera is the least valuable thing in the room.”
