Building a Display

Who doesn't love Graphic Novels? With wildly diverse subjects, styles and themes, Graphic Novels (GN) are well-deserving of the growing attention and acclaim they've received over the past decade. As part of the Directed Fieldwork, I was tasked with creating a display for the 3rd floor of the Central branch, and I knew immediately that GNs would be a perfect fit. I hand-picked over 60 titles, created what I hoped would be an eye-catching sign (left) and arranged the books on the display fixture as carefully as I do my books at home. A full account of the process is described here, on my Directed Fieldwork site.
