Today’s submitter found this at a large public library where he volunteers to help people long out of work. As a librarian himself, he is horrified at the materials available in the career section there. I can see why!
People interested in interior design are likely attracted to very visual things. This book alone is enough to turn them off from an otherwise promising career!
From the hair to the clothes to the rooms featured, this one can be sent back to the 80’s where it belongs.
This reminds me of the woman that did the interior design of a new library where Mary and I used to work. She wanted to feature our library in her portfolio, so she came to take pictures shortly after the library was open for business. She was absolutely horrified that the library was being used and that work was being done in her beautiful spaces. The sorting carts were ugly, the book drop was unseemly…pretty much all of our every day work had to be moved out of the camera eye so as not to sully the [somewhat impractical] design. It was quite beautiful, though. I’ll give her that.
