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."
