In response to my post beautiful > ugly Suzanne Chapman just shared some examples of nice looking graphic design from the University of Michigan Library.
This got me thinking about two other things I’ve seen recently. The first is a collection of library cards from the Edmonton Public Library (via John Blyberg’s Twitter feed).
They also have an associated sticker contest. I think I have a pretty big crush on this library.
Lastly, the District of Columbia Public Library has two new library card designs. One of them is a promotion for the forthcoming second version of the DCPL iPhone app.
I really like the idea of a library putting out collectable, limited edition library cards that people can trade in their old cards for.
