Low Waste Wedding: Librarian Edition

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Remember those card catalog cards the Brooklyn Museum was giving away? Well, my librarian friend, Jennie, also scored a batch and put them to excellent use. At her beautiful fall wedding last weekend, we looked up our names to find our table assignments.

Card catalog cards!

Friday, January 28, 2011

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?
