Library Books 📔

The Library Books are a series of research books that each focus on a particular library in New York City. Each “book” varies in its approach, design, size, and style.

What I listened to:

‘Enlightenment’ is a book designed as a double-sided, fold-out poster, acting as a guide to everything-lighting and gives an inside look into what the NYPL uses.

The two flip books, ‘4:34’ and ‘6:14’, tell a single story of an attempt to access the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Library through text messages. One page is one minute of passing time.

The final book is a data mining report of the Interference Archive’s button/pin collection. Using R, it tries to find relationships between a button’s design and its characteristics.
