Survival Scrapbooks – Shelter, Food and Energy, 1972-74

This is the first of three books of mine that were originally published by Unicorn Bookshop in Brighton. Shelter was followed by ‘Food’ and ‘Energy’ to cover basic human life supports. The pages were coded rather than numbered and drilled to add to a loose leaf binder so people could make their own scrapbooks. They had some success in UK and were republished in new slightly smaller editions in the USA. They were seen as a British answer to the Whole Earth Catalogue…
A review by Simon Yuill published on the Mute website in 2008 suggested they were prescient in some ways.
