Local artist Daniel Rotsztain draws all 99 Toronto libraries

“While most people shuffle through a period of unemployment doling out resumes, one Toronto man decided to spend it travelling to each of the city’s 99 public libraries. From the end of August to October, 25-year-old artist and geographer Daniel Rotsztain boarded buses, trains, streetcars and his bike with an inky pen in hand and plenty of paper. His goal was to capture the city’s bastions of books by drawing each one of them in a “homey, but blue print style”— a feat he sometimes conquered amidst scorching heat and drizzling rain.” (via Toronto Star)

Brooklyn artists building mini library

NY Daily News – “Brooklyn’s newest – and smallest – library is currently under construction by two borough artists. Partners Julia Marchesi and Leon Reid IV are working on a book branch that’s just 6-feet high and modeled after a Brooklyn brownstone. Called the “The Hundred Story House,” Marchesi and Reid’s work is a celebration of the borough’s literary-savvy culture. The pair want to site the structure in Cobble Hill Park this spring where its 100 books will be available on a take-a-book, leave-a-book honor system.”
