Book Lust // BiblioCraft

(via)

Because I have been known to pick up an old book just for its end papers or just for a small illustration on one page out of one hundred, I wanted to share what looks to be a wonderfully curated and beautifully photographed library-inspired craft book.

BiblioCraft, published by Abrams, includes project ideas inspired by all facets of library materials and encourages readers to get lost in the stacks (one of my personal favorite things to do): "Explore and discover. Collect and learn. Wander and reveal."

Written by NYPL Rare Books Librarian Jessica Pigza and featuring projects from Grace Bonney and Heather Ross (to name a few), this book appears to be something I will literally pore over for hours and hours. And it's already inspired me to set aside some time this weekend to become reacquainted with my personal collection of old books - how many lovely quirks and little oddities are there to be found within the pages to jolt a creative spark?

I've already put in my request slip at the library!
