The library at the Brooklyn Museum switched over to an online book archiving system and thus have no more use for the cards in their old card catalog. So they’ve been giving them away to artists, art of the book design students and, more recently, anyone who let’s them know what they plan to do with the cards. I wrote in and requested a bunch and arranged an appointment to pick them up. Stay tuned for literary upcycling updates.
I tried to pick cards that had some personal significance, which was not as hard as I’d imagined it would me. More on that later. In the meantime, when’s the last time you watched Party Girl?
