How and Why: A Do-it-yourself Guide by Matte Resist

How and Why: A Do-it-yourself Guide by Matte Resist

This book stands above piles of how-to drivel because of Matte's explanation of not just how, but why we should ride bikes, build musical instruments, and plant gardens. He's not raising a middle finger to the status quo; he's too busy with hammer and wrench in hand.

“I dream of a better world,” writes zinester and How and Why author Matte Resist in the intro to his new book. He continues, “To me DIY culture is about grabbing a little piece of that dream.” What follows over the course of the next 176 pages is Matte doing what all dreamers must do—waking up from his dream, opening his eyes, and confronting what roadblocks and hurdles lie between him and his goal. Matte does this by laying down chapter upon chapter of blueprints for a better world. A sequel to our do-it-yourself handbookMaking Stuff and Doing ThingsHow and Why gives us detailed, engaging, easy-to-use info on bicycles, home and garage, gardening, educating children, musical instruments, and the all-inclusive “everything else” section. If you dream of taking back your life and building a better world, How and Why might be your new best friend

 

An Active warning;

Please note we were surpirised to find some distinctly non-vegan methods of "pest control" detailed in this book. Whilst we do not check or indeed expect everything we distribute to be vegan concious we did think a Microcosm title would be more animal friendly than this one. We probably will not restock it.
