Brooklyn Makers: Some Good Reading

Where does inspiration come from?  As a designer and maker I find it everywhere; store windows, other's DIY in work projects, magazines, the streets and people of New York. I recently picked up a new book, not an ebook but a real book.  I enjoy turning the pages, having a hard copy in my hands, dog earring pages and making notes in the margins. This book, called Brooklyn Makers, is about numerous makers, artists, designers in Brooklyn. It is a great collection of inspiring makers.  Businesses and talents range from making pizza to making floral arrangements and making furniture.
Jennifer Causey is the author and I appreciate the way she has set up and written the book. Each section has about 3 short paragraphs giving a bio on the maker with pictures on the opposite page. The next 2 pages are more photos and a question and answer section. Living in NYC inspiration is all around us.  One of the commonly asked questions is where do you find your inspiration.
