TOOLS - Users Guide Book

Regular price $29 Unit price  per 

Description:
“How can we design a life based on our own personal values and sensibility, without getting drowned out by the flood of information?”

This is the question posed by the 2019 TooLs book - an anti-consumerist catalogue put together by Mountain Morning. Divided into four sections - Land Use, Something Fun, Work to Do, and Feel At Home - this book brings remarkable, long lasting products together in one picture book that is a joy to look through. With designs from all around the world (and many designs we carry at TGS!) this publication is intended to function as a guidebook for conscious consumers everywhere.

History: 
TOOLS, a three issue series, sprung out of a short article in the Japanese fashion-culture magazine, Huge. Mountain Morning sought to write an article that celebrated craftsmanship and long-lasting designs, instead of the ever growing trend of fast fashion. TOOLS seeks to use the concrete form of a book as a way to pass down the value of good design to future generations.
