"I'd rather take coffee than compliments just now"—Louisa May Alcott

The New York Public Library's flagship location, the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, is one of the Library's premier research centers, renowned for its extraordinary historical collections and its commitment to providing free and equal access to its resources. It houses some 15 million items, including many works that illuminate the centuries-old craft of bookbinding.

This mug's marbled design evokes the vibrant endpapers and covers found in bookbinding. Created by floating colors on the surface of a liquid, then applying paper or fabric to capture the design, the process produces intricate and unique patterns. The vintage NYPL bookbinding stamp was originally used on the spine of books bound in and for The New York Public Library.
