The Center for Fiction, founded in 1820 as the Mercantile Library, is the only organization in the United States devoted solely to the art of fiction. Its new headquarters, relocated from Manhattan to the heart of the Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District, offers 17,000 sf of resource-rich space to literary professionals and enthusiasts. The space showcases the emerging community of Brooklyn-based makers through the use of custom fabricated furniture, neon signage, and metalwork, including Richlite café tables CNC routed with literary quotes, a bench made of books and a graphics program inspired by book plates from the Center’s collection.
