Tool Book
Book
6" x 8"
2017

Tool Book, began with an open call and is a compilation of the texts, images and objects that edify, inspire, support and radicalize us in this time of deep uncertainty and resistance. As we learn to exist under unstable conditions we look for signs of sanity and support. Tool Book humbly seeks to be a small part of how we connect with each other in our shocking political moment, and provide a way to raise needed funds to protect our most threatened communities and values.

Taking inspiration from the Whole Earth Catalog and it’s emphasis on “access to tools” that elevate the “power of the individual to conduct his [their] own education, find his [their] own inspiration, shape his [their] own environment, and share his [their] adventure with whoever is interested…” it has been sourced from you, members of a dynamic, creative community. Contributors submitted a wide range of responses, including: A meaningful text. A radicalizing text. An edifying text. A soothing text. A poem. A photo of the cover of an important text. A drawing of a person or thing that supports you, cares for you, inspires you. A photo of a person that motivates you. A design object, idea or quote. Song lyrics. Still from a film. A collage. A work of art. A photo of the view out of your window. Any image, drawing, photo, scan or other representation of a powerful tool.

All profits support organizations that need our help, including the, Black Lives Matter, Callen-Lorde, Sylvia Rivera Law Project and Sane Energy Project.
