DIY Decadence from Bompas & Parr and Friends is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Bompas & Parr and Friends brings a new publication to the home – a spectacular documentation of quarantine creativity and what can be realised with whatever’s left in the back of your store cupboard. It is the year 2020, and as the pandemic sweeps across the World, creativity is brewing in the homes of imaginative communities. This book captures works from 72 collaborators, from Peru to Italy, each invoking the spirit of the feast with what they have to hand. The 136 lurid and exotic responses to lockdown challenges, from meat draped in jewellery to explosive baking can be your goad to ongoing culinary experimentation. In a hoped-for golden era of creativity, the magazine outlines radical strategies for pleasure.
