Meet the Makers!
Design by the Book began life as a series here at NYPL, co-produced by Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge. It follows the experiences of five local artists as they explore the Library's collections (and the building itself too!) in search of inspiration for their work. I was their resident reference librarian and had great fun helping them out in their searches. We're planning some super fall programming that will bring more crafty and artsy books out of the stacks and to the DIY-ing masses, so stay tuned if you want to get some hands-on library inspiration too. But in the meantime, come to tonight's event and see some great films and meet the makers!
