i'm loving this skirt created by textile designer extraordinaire heather ross. she made it for an event held at the nypl about designers/crafters gaining inspiration from the library stacks. and boy did she ever. the image is a drawing of a cross section of the library's underground stacks, showing in great detail how an enormous collection of books could be stored, organized, and made easily accessed by all. it even shows the pulley system that was used to carry the books from deep underground! so, so cool.
