Product description


Across 256 pages, this small but enlightening anthology brings together such DIY "products" as an outdoor shower assembled from school bus doors; and a makeshift table topped with a street sign, which looks as if it belongs in a hipster loft.--David Dick-Agnew "Azure " The objects we buy are supposed to tell us something about who we are. But they don't tell us half as much as the objects we make, as even a quick flick through Home-Made Europe: Contemporary Folk Artifacts reveals. Here are everyday things people have fashioned with their own hands. Heaters, hammers, anchors, rat-traps, barbecues, showers and goalposts. They range from the pitiful - a child's grill for corn on the cob, rigged out of wires bent over tea lights - to the technically impressive - one man made a fridge. This is a catalogue of human resourcefulness.--Justin McGuirk "The Guardian " Home-made Europe, by Vladimir Arkhipov, is a humble tribute to home-spun DIY. The Russian artist criss-crossed Europe to find ordinary people who have addressed their household needs with extraordinary inventions, often involving bits of other household objects.--Editors "Wallpaper* "
