Faced with complex challenges, people worldwide try to change their fortunes by innovations that are judged differently in different places and different periods. We look at how international borders are enforced and also broken, what defines the idea of original or fake, how our lives are shaped by our belief in the authenticity of official documents, how prisoners make their lives more bearable by making imaginative inventions from contraband, and how creating your own currency can be a rewarding way to protect local areas. As always, these ideas were collected, researched and documented so that they can help us to improve our lives or the lives of others.

Features

  • Field Notes ‘Two Rivers’. Our spring limited-edition is made with a variety of hand-set wood type designs & sales benefit Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum.
  • Editorial. Exploring the fine line between breaking the rules and breaking the laws.
  • Bending Borders. When the village of Szelmenc was split between two countries, people devised ingenious ways of staying in touch with friends and family.
  • The Forgery Market. There is a place where you can custom order forgeries of nearly any official document you desire. It’s cheap, fast and, of course, illegal.
  • Make-shift Winery in Norway. *Vestavin* documents DIY wine making, a semi-legal tradition in Norwegian culture, examining its present practices and future possibilities.
