Experts' Expert: World's best library ladders

1

Architect Annabelle Selldorf, in the course of explaining in yesterday's Wall Street Journal why the Morgan Library in New York is her favorite room, said, "The balconies seem to float in the room— an illusion reinforced by the absence of a visible staircase. Instead, there's a pair of stairs marvelously hidden behind the walls. Of course, there's a trade-off: They're rather narrow, tight and uncomfortable to be on. We do a lot of custom library ladders in our projects, mostly from Putnam Rolling Ladder Co. — one of the all-time great New York Companies. They've been in business for over a century."

I've never been to the Morgan Library; it's on my list of things to see in Gotham should I ever find myself there.
