Iowa Designer's DIY Guide to Getting Stuff Done Examines 25 Tools of the Trade
Iowa-based designer Alex Register’s The DIY Guide To Getting Stuff Done is a well-designed book that takes you through the how-to’s and what-have-you’s of do-it-yourself hand tools. He uses iconography and typography to examine 25 tools in the trade of design and life, including the X-Acto knife, screw, paintbrush and pen.
The guide also features a timeline of the history of tools, which dates as far back as the original tool—the hand. Tim Allen, who played television’s most famous handyman along with Ani Defranco and engineer Ben Linder are also quoted in the guide.
