Everyday Play

A Campaign against Boredom

Edited by Julian Rothenstein. Foreword by Andrey Kurkov.

Everyday Play

Are you bored by daily routine? Learn how to restore play to the everyday, with games and life tips from artists, writers and thinkers from Louise Bourgeois and Hunter S. Thompson to Lydia Davis and Karl Lagerfeld

“Life must be lived as play,” said Plato, and this book will help you rediscover the wonder in the weekly grind, and the extraordinary in the ordinary. Throughout history, philosophers, artists and writers have found liberation in taking play seriously. Everyday Play shows you how you can use creativity, games and the imagination to transform your life.
Learn how to be someone else for a day; explore how to draw a poem, paint a book and reorient your library; enjoy writers using constraints or languages they don’t understand; play the Edible Book Game or become a living sculpture; become a writer and play word games to find new ways of saying what you mean.
Everyday Play is the essential compendium of artists’ games, philosophers' inquiries and manifestos against the banal. They will challenge our perceptions of work, rest and play, with contributions from, among others, Joan Acocella, Luis Buńuel, Lewis Carroll, Robert Creeley, Adam Dant, Lydia Davis, Jeremy Deller, Dashiell Hammett, Will Hobson, Nina Katchadourian, Andrei Monastyrski, Francis Ponge, Erik Satie and Mark Wahlberg.
Everyday Play is fabulous!” –Cornelia Parker
Everyday Play will jiggle your syntax and bio-energize your astral enzymes. It reads like the misbehaving son of ‘Redstone.’” –Ed Ruscha

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

nycitywoman

Suzanne Charle

Everyday Play: A Campaign Against Boredom is a quirky, offbeat, maybe even subversive guide to brainpower overhaul—or at least some charged-up amusements.

Vanity Fair

Madison Reid

This slim, unassuming book is packed with an exciting mix of conceptual art, graphics, and type, and promises to teach its readers how to become an aesthete and an artist: live like Gertrude Stein, cook like Louise Bourgeois.

Remember fun? It's making a comeback with 'Everyday Play'

Remember fun? It's making a comeback with 'Everyday Play'

Featured spreads are from Everyday Play: A Campaign against Boredom—a book that will "jiggle your syntax and bio-energize your astral enzymes," according to artist Ed Ruscha. Brought to us by the spirited London art book and Redstone Diary publisher Redstone Press, this 176-page flexi-bound mental gymnasium collects artist games, philosophers' inquiries and manifestos against the banal that challenge our perceptions of work, rest and play. "This is a fascinating book," Ukrainian novelist and independent thinker Andrey Kurkov writes. "It fascinated me/us so much that I/we tried out many of the strange games, habits, rituals and principles described in it and also chose several heroes of the book for personal experiments. I/we wish you the joy of doing the same! Read on! It will not be boring! It will be fun and thought provoking! Certainly, you will acquire some new recipes for life. After all, the well-prepared life of someone else is bound to bring on a healthy feeling of hunger as well as a not-always-so-healthy feeling of envy. A recipe for life, like a recipe for any other dish, consists of ingredients: we are privileged to take from other people’s recipes for life all those ingredients that arouse our curiosity and sincere interest." continue to blog
