PAPERMAG Recommends: Brooklyn Modern

A book that we can't stop leafing through is Diana Lind's recently published Brooklyn Modern: Architecture, Interiors and Design (Rizzoli). For those of you who compulsively look at Brooklyn craigslist listings just so you can peek into other people's apartments (OK, well maybe that's just us), this book is real estate porn at its most highbrow -- in that we didn't feel dirty inside after reading it. Lind set out to document Brooklyn's renaissance as seen through its blossoming modern architecture scene, so in addition to gorgeous photos by Yoko Inoue, this tome features insightful essays by Lind, Design Sponge's Grace Bonney, Brownstoner's Jonathan Butler and Architectural Record's Robert Ivy.
