“Panoramic photographer Jeffrey Martin spent five days shooting this 40-gigapixel image of the library at Strahov Monastery in Prague. Martin calls it “the largest interior photo in the world,’ and ‘the highest-resolution view of any interior space that has ever been captured. ‘You can look in any direction, and zoom in closely enough to read the ancient lettering on the spines of these very old books. Martin stitched 2,947 individual photos together to make the image.” (via Patricia Sarles / LM Net Archives)

The website claims that if you printed this photo it would be 23 metres (or 78 feet) long. Click on either image, view full screen and take a tour – you can almost smell the ancient texts.
