Giveaway: BIBLIOCraft

Bibliocraft_Case_TO PRINT_r5.indd

BIBLIOCraft, like library science, is not for the faint of heart. Author Jessica Pigza is an Assistant Curator in the rare book division of the New York Public Library, and her new book is full of specific and technical information to help modern crafters find inspiration at the library. Pigza includes resources to help crafters locate specialty research and digital libraries, as well as some basic information on navigating and maximizing your library experience.


BIBLIOCraft also includes over 20 projects from designers who were inspired by prints, typefaces and historical illustrations found through the library system. From illuminated manuscripts to soil profiles, rhumb lines to heraldry, BIBLIOCraft reminds crafters and designers that inspiration can be found in unlikely places, but the library is a great place to start.
