ReadyMade: How to make (almost) everything
Library Shelf Location 46.BERG
Publication Date 2006
Description Readymade is a cult publication that describes itself as ‘a magazine for people who like to make stuff, who see the flicker of invention in everyday objects’. This quirky, witty ‘how-to’ volume, the magazine’s incarnation in book form, is full of inventive and clever design projects – from water-bottle lounge chairs and ladder shelving to shopping bag rugs and denim dog beds – guaranteed to inspire modern do-it-yourselfers. 'ReadyMade embodies a spirit of not just DIY, not just reuse/recycle, but a revolutionary sort of aesthetic ethos that allows us to make elegant objects from unelegant things … For now, it’s the only tasteful way to have taste’ – Dave Eggers • All the projects look handsome; they incorporate a common object; they challenge the do-it-yourselfer; and they recontextualise common-or-garden objects – shopping bags, water bottles, chopsticks … Shoshana Berger and Grace Hawthorne founded 'ReadyMade' magazine in 2005. This is their first book.
