More Show Me How: Everything We Couldn't Fit in the First Book Instructions for Life from the Everyday to the Exoticby Lauren Smith
Is this a strangely entertaining reference book or a reference book of strange entertainment? I'm not sure, but I know this much: you'll laugh just as often as you'll learn, whether it's how to divide a unibrow, paint a car, shoot sexy home movies, or pick up a new baby. Not to mention the hitherto unknown (at least to me) art of applying lipstick with one's own cleavage.
Synopses & Reviews
What the world needs now is More Show Me How. The bizarre, hilarious, and utterly indispensable manual for living from Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom (the geniuses behind showmenow.com) covers everything you could want to know…and some things you would never dream of learning. This beautifully designed and fun-to-follow collection delivers something for everyone, whether youre a fan of design world favorites like Visual Aid and Visual Miscellaneum, a reader of eHows How to Do Just About Everything, or just one of the countless people who has always wanted to know how to ride a mechanical bull, shoot fire arrows, sculpt with a chainsaw, hem a pair of pants, or do the Lion Dance for Chinese New Year.
A new collection of fun, practical, and outrageous projects from the genius minds of the original Show Me How.
Volume two of the Show Me How series contains brand-new instructions that show readers how to amaze, trick, create, style, and love, among other endeavors. Ideas range from the practical (hang a ceiling fixture; hem a pair of pants) to the outrageous (boobytrap a bathroom; forge an antiquity) to the romantic (ace a school crush; send a saucy cell phone pic.) So go ahead and learn some killer pool moves. Or stage your own impromptu gallery show. Style you hair in a fauxhawk. More Show Me How is the indispensable real-life resource that helps readers live life to the fullest and be the star of the party.
About the Author
Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom are San Francisco based editors, writers, designers, shop owners, and lovers of the unusual, the eclectic and, especially, the hand-crafted. They currently run The Curiosity Shoppe in San Francisco's Mission District, selling (and falling in love with) everything from a make-it-yourself ukulele to a DIY bird-watching kit. They haven't yet found a subject they aren't interested in, making them the perfect partners for the Show Me Howbook and series.
Prior to opening the Shoppe, Lauren and Derek lived busy, creative lives in New York where, among other things, they started what they called the Curiosity Guild—a group of friends who gathered regularly to teach each other how to do cool, quirky, or downright useful things.
