A collection of partially invented biographical excerpts inspired by a number of rusting tools found in my shed and a number of cleaned-up tools borrowed from Bernard’s former odds-and-ends shop in Kington. Subjects range far and wide, from Matsuo Bashō to Somerset Maugham, Hugo Ball to Sir Martin Frobisher and Jacques Tati to Niall MacGinnis (among others). Some of the writing is even true, but hopefully not the bits you might expect. The booklet comes in two forms: a flapped pouch of separate cards and a simpler sewn booklet that features smaller images of the tools printed all together printed on its front flap. June, 2012.
