Do it yourself

Posted in 11 - Do it yourself, Cover page

  “Most of the things that are built according to the indications in this volume can be made with used or low-value materials that you find in your home, or with materials purchased in a nearby store. Here is a list of those materials and the tools you will need. But editors expect you to use your imagination and good judgment to tailor projects and materials to your needs and your means.” This is how it starts Do it yourself, the creativity manual that taught us to play, to knit, cook and sometimes even damage something at home. Either way, nothing will match that feeling of seeing some of the tricks materialize in real life, experiments or crafts that this volume gave us. It was something magical: having the puppet in our hands or using an element created by ourselves taught us that imagination is much more than fantasies, is the beginning of the creation of new worlds and realities. This is perhaps the richest tome in design and therefore the most difficult to digitize, but it is a challenge that we gladly accept. With you, Do it yourself. Manuel

It is beautiful what you have done, thank you very much

I do not know how many times I read their stories, nor how many things did I put together with Do it yourself. Our collection is still complete and in good condition. I hope my children and nephews appreciate it. I appreciate that you published it

I can't tell you the feeling you gave me, It took me many years to remember the name of the collection because it was so small when I used them. Today I am an entrepreneur and thanks to these books I obtained or developed a large part of my creativity. I am tremendously indebted to what you did on this site…

It seems to me that these contents are well structured and their aesthetics makes you awaken a feeling of nostalgia and those issues but, Really, in the XXI century, beyond to remember, these contents are useful? Because I see many incongruities.
P. D. It does not take away from the gratitude for uploading the entire collection, that I love. What happens is that I doubt its validity.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, please, he comments.x
