"On the list of things that I love most, books take a very close second to crafting. So, if you too are just as likely to be found in a library reading room as you are in your local yarn and fabric store, BiblioCraft: A Modern Crafter's Guide to Using Library Resources to Jumpstart Creative Projects, a new book from STC Craft, written by New York Public Library rare book librarian Jessica Pigza, will definitely be right up your alley!"--MAKE/
"When I discovered that it is no ordinary craft book...but one that encourages creative projects inspired by vintage or long forgotten books from the library (or even your own bookshelf), I was captivated!"--Creature Comforts blog
"Rarely does a decorating or DIY book make my heart flutter, but Jessica Pigza really knows how to charm a bibliophile whose passion is crafting and decorating."
"Crafty library lovers must check out BiblioCraft . . . If you consider yourself a bookworm and enjoy time spent in the stacks, treat yourself to this book."--Michigan Live
"Making beautiful things from books."--Chicago Tribune
"Jessica Pigza's BiblioCraft is beautifully designed and full of both doable and aspirational projects by some of the hugest names in the craft world . . . I'm positively drooling."--Starred Review from Library Journal
"Pigza showcases an array of designs by master craftspeople and artists that were all inspired by the holdings at the New York library--referencing the originals, of course--and includes instructions so you can make your own."--Los Angeles Times
"Libraries are full of inspiration and resources and there's a new book that tells exactly how to mine them."
"A Top Read."--Mollie Makes
"Moms looking to get crafty need look no further."
"Combining books and crafts? Sign me up."--Our Daily Craft
"What we all liked about this book is that it had what I call 'meat' or maybe you might call substance. In the beginning of Bibliocraft, [Pigza] explains things about libraries that I didn't know existed. From the library system (branch, research, special collections), to how to find the right library for you (mindblowing info here), to how to plan a library visit (yes--there is a proper way), to how to search. Bibliocraft explains things that I think only librarians know and she does it in a way normal people can understand."--Getting Stitched on the Farm
