In celebration of Buckminster Fuller's 125th birthday, a new facsimile of the cult cookbook, 'Synergetic Stew'

Featured spreads are reproduced from Synergetic Stew: Explorations in Dymaxion Dining, Lars Müller's new facsimile edition of the cult cookbook produced by friends and family of Buckminster Fuller on the occasion of his 86th birthday in 1981. Today, we celebrate what would have been Bucky's 125th! "I am excited to have the opportunity to introduce you to this new edition of Synergetic Stew: Explorations in Dymaxion Dining, Fuller's granddaughter Jamie Snyder writes. "The 1981 publication was a surprise gift for my grandfather, Buckminster Fuller, from his Philadelphia office staff on the occasion of his eighty-sixth birthday. It comprises stories and recipes gathered from many of his dear friends and family. As I reviewed a copy of the first edition, I was immediately reminded what a delightful publication it is, and especially how it reflects Bucky’s great sense of humor, largely overlooked in the canon of articles and books about him… As Bucky’s brother-in-law Roger Hewlett reflected elegantly, 'Bucky was always a wellspring of creative things. He would write songs and dialogue, and we would all howl with laughter.… None of this side of Bucky ever gets into the books about him. They make him out to be this great, sober intelligence.… It’s a great pity that the biographies leave out the light, wild things, because they miss a great deal of what Bucky is.'"
