Self-Reliance Library (2nd Edition)

Regular price $5.00

The Self-Reliance Library is an autonomous reading and creating library. Gathering together a collection of older books and reference materials that Temporary Services has found inspiring while undertaking publishing and curatorial projects—and living their lives—as well as new books they've just encountered, this publication provides a valuable and personal selection of titles and book descriptions for the reading connoisseur.

The collected titles were selected provoke the reader, encourage a deeper relationship with a shared natural and human environment, solve creative problems, or suggest imaginative directions for an accessibly designed approach to knowledge and life.

This publication features 80 books about: visionary architecture; desperate or wildly imaginative mobility; miniature buildings and nomadic living; self-publishing and design; skill sharing, everyday repair solutions; running a music venue; spaces for parenthood; toys and design for children; ecologically sound living; foraging; blueprints for fantasy worlds and alternate realities; pranks and mischief; technologies used in prisons and other restrictive or impoverished settings; survivalism; weapons for self-defense or recreation; and creative approaches to living radically.
