The small manifestos are written for wonder, wisdom, joy, love, and openness – and for the common good. They describe an alternative and grounded response to the material world, a way in which we might live our lives with depth and soul.

This project stemmed from an earlier collaboration for which they produced illustrations to accompany 5 pieces of writing for a book submission. Although this version was never published they were able to use and add to these illustrations for his new book which he had written as an extension to the original pieces of writing.

First published by Raw Mixture Publishing in 2014, and in its third reprint!
