Delia Peel

British scenic and costume designer Delia Peel prefers to start her research in libraries and second hand bookstores rather than online, because, she says, “You can find something that you didn't expect on the next page. You have more happy accidents.” When Peel does go online, she uses google.com more often than google.co.uk (she finds the US version better for picture research), and Corbis, Bill Gates' online image collection.

Peel likes the Barbican Library for its music collection
