The online catalog of The General Public Library, by Art in General Designer in Residence Mylinh Nguyen is up. The General Public Library is a library/reading room project where Nguyen invited designers, publishers, curators, artists, galleries, and musicians to contribute publications that reflect the donor’s practice, methodology, inspiration and interest.
Sign up, browse and curate your own library made from a growing list of donors, including: Art Metropole, aaaarg.org, Ooga Booga, Fillip, Printed Matter, Nieves, 2nd Cannons Publications, Capricious, Hassla, Golden Age, Medium Rare, Oslo Editions, Gottlund Verlag, Eastside Projects, Bedford Press, Stripe SF, New Jerseyy, Matt Keegan, North Drive Press, split/fountain, STUPENDOUS, The Holster, Bart de Baets, Andreas Banderas, Christian Brandt, Task Newsletter, Robin Cameron, Dante Carlos, For Further Information, Espen Friberg and Aslak Gurholt Rønsen, David Horvitz, Marie Jager, Kingsboro Press, Zak Kyes, Lucky Dragons, Manystuff, Jennilee Marigomen, Radim Pesko, Ro/Lu, Laurel Ptak, Rollo Press, Peter Sutherland, Swill Children, Vance Wellenstein, Jessica Williams and YOU.
Each donation, as it is made, will be logged into the library cataloging system. As libraries begin to form and overlap, each book becomes a link between the book donor and other participants in the library. Inversely, when viewing one book, it is possible to see the interests of other participants.
If you are in New York, check out the actual reading room and perhaps make a book donation from September 16-November 13, 2010 at Art in General.
