Dirty Librarian Chains

Our favorite library happens to be in our own backyard.  The Pratt art institute made local history way back in 1896 with opening the Pratt Library, which was Brooklyn's first free public library.  Now you have to be a student to check out books, but I was lucky to gain access for  to peruse their inspiring collection.   To add to the beauty, most of the fixtures were designed by Tiffany specifically for their stacks, and they have some of the most wonderful old books including some gorgeous map indexes.  Check out our Classics Collection photo shoot from a day in the Pratt Stacks!
