Bookshelf: What We’re Reading

Take some time to read this holiday weekend – with Alice Rawsthorn’s new release, Hello World, exploring the power of design to transform society. Delve into the world of restaurants and their owners with Nicholas Lander’s The Art of the Restaurateur. Or get inspired and donate books to your local library – check out Todd Oldham’s recent bright and cheery re-design of Staten Island’s PS 21 school library (shown above). (Note: the school’s revamp opened just days before Sandy. While it survived the storm, many in the borough are still in need – here are ways to help.)
