DIY Survival Kit. First appearance at Leeds Central Library, 23 September 2008.
The DIY Survival Kit is a collaborative publication in limited supply, no two of which are the same. Each copy is a resource of knowledge and advice contributed by previous owners of the publication to help you address everyday dilemmas including ‘I don’t have a bed’, ‘I want to be an avant-garde musician but I don’t have any equipment’, ‘I’m hungry but I’m wary of MSG’, ‘I have no idea how to shave with this thing’ and so forth. The kit has been lent out at various events as a travelling Black Dogs library performance.
The DIY survival kit has seen appearances at book fairs and exhibitions including a live performance of some of the cards (see DIY Survival Kit:Live! in 2009 projects). Watch this space for announcements about the compendium bound version.
