Mark Frauenfelder is one crafty fellow. His latest book is not only a fun romp, but a guidebook of sorts for those in need of inspiration — almost anything which has performed its primary function can be transformed into something else of use, using only your hands and imagination.
To get a sense of Frauenfelder’s personality and come to realize you wish he was your best friend, read his blog.
Watch him with Stephen Colbert.
He is the Editor in Chief of Make Magazine and founder of boingboing.net.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve got him to ourselves for just a bit of time this Saturday, the 12th of June, starting at 4pm. Frauenfelder will be in our garden signing copies of his new book, Made by Hand: Searching for Meaning in a Throwaway World. If you don’t have a copy of your own yet, the book will be available at the bookstore.
Hope to see you there!
