"Everyday on design*sponge, Grace Bonney introduces her readers to talented and innovative artists, offers sneak peaks into amazing houses and studios, and inspires people to get creative. In her new web series, Design By the Book, she documents the collaboration process of five Brooklyn artists with the New York Public Library. The show chronicles the artists’ introduction to the library collection and documents the projects they make inspired by the research they find there. Through it all, Grace reminds us that not all librarians are bespectacled old ladies who shush everyone in the building. She uncovers the hip underbelly of the library and what treasure we can find there."
