Voted a Best Book of 2014 by Library Journal There is untold wealth in library collections, and, like every good librarian, Jessica Pigza loves to share. In BiblioCraft, Pigza hones her literary hunting-and-gathering skills to help creatives of all types, from DIY hobbyists to fine artists, develop projects based on library resources. In Part I, she explains how to take advantage of the riches libraries have to offer—both in person and online. In Part II, she presents 20+ projects inspired by library resources from a stellar designer cast, including STC Craft authors Natalie Chanin, Heather Ross, Liesl Gibson, and Gretchen Hirsch, and Design*Sponge founder Grace Bonney. Whatever the quest—historic watermarks transformed into pillows, Japanese family crests turned into coasters, or historic millinery instructions worked into floral fascinators—anyone can utilize library resources to bring their creative visions to life.

This book is a great introduction into the world of libraries and how they can be used by makers to drum up ideas for creative projects. The author, Jessica Pigza, is a librarian at the New York Public Library, who also happens to be a creator herself. She offers great tips on how to use libraries in person and online to help you find what you're looking for, from where to start looking, to how to prepare for a library visit, to how to use library catalogs and the internet, to understanding the library of congress subject headings. It's all in here. The author provides lists of different directories and digital libraries that are helpful for unearthing all kinds of creative inspiration.

The second part of the book are sample projects by different crafters, including the author herself, that were inspired by discoveries made at the library. While this section is heavy on sewing and embroidery related projects, it also includes paper crafting, stenciling, and jewelry making. This section is where the ideas and concepts introduced in the first part of the book really come alive, as the reader is shown the inspiration piece and the resulting finished project. While the instructions to make your own may not be as detailed as one would like, especially for a beginner, the ideas presented here really get you thinking about how limitless the resources at the library can be at helping you jumpstart a project of your own.

I read about this somewhere on the web, and there was a project I wanted to try. Unfortunately, the other projects aren't very interesting to me, but they might be to others. The resources are very helpful.
Iraraeal
Beautifully made book but not for the beginner crafter. Still, there are some projects I would like to try. If you are a more seasoned crafter who likes doing some research for inspiration you will LOVE this book.
Brol
Wow!!! Great book (condition and content!)
Macage
As a person who loves books and textiles, this book is perfect for me.
Kazimi
So much useful information in this book—just what I'd expect from a librarian who stores her sewing machine atop a card catalog.
At a time when communities seem all too eager to shutter their libraries, here is the gifted Jessica Pigza to remind us of the many treasures at hand for anyone with the slightest creative spark. I am sorry that I bought just one copy; I am re-ordering several more for our local libraries.
