The Spazhouse Research Library

So I am nearing completion to the Spazhouse Research Library. It it may be nothing like Jay Walker's library, which is amazing and I have thought using his library as a goal.

I may not have Sputnick, but I have some neat items in my library to be proud of. I continued a Steampunk influence for the Art Lab and Library.

I utilized a font from the HP Lovecraft Society for the Ex Libris stencil on the floors. It is called Roman Black.

Here are some various views of the Library. The metal sheeting on the walls is to cover the T1-11 paneling that the former owners put up. I hated the idea of ripping down the paneling because it is such a pain. I tried painting it, that worked for a bit and I stumbled on the idea to hang old offset aluminum printing plates. This reflects a lot of light were the light source is very minimal. The book cases I collected from various antique shops. For years I used the old stand by, milk crates, but they never achieve the look of a library, just someone who needs to flee with their stuff in the middle of the night.

More to come Blogger seems a bit sluggish
