Gigapan Photos


Alastair Johnston, the vice chairman of sports management behemoth IMG World and chairman of the Glasgow Rangers Football Club, has the world's largest private collection of golf books -- more than 16,000 volumes. Only the USGA has a larger collection. A Glasgow native who now lives near Cleveland, Johnston began his collection in 1969 and adds 600-700 books annually. He says he wants to own every golf book ever published.

Gigapan, a relatively new technology, is a robotic camera that takes hundreds of images over an extended period of time, which are then stitched together in a high-resolution panoramic photograph. To experience the full impact of the Gigapan and Johnston's remarkable library, use the zoom tool below to view books close-up and move around the room.-- Ron Sirak
