By Tamara Shopsin & Jason Fulford
Are your phone and computer turning you into a ZOMBIE? Return to the real world! Do one of these activities every week for a year and see what happens.
Designed as a pocket-sized coupon-style booklet with perforated pages — edited, illustrated and designed by Tamara Shopsin and Jason Fulford — OFFLINE ACTIVITIES contains 52 suggestions for engaging with the world beyond your electronic devices.
“Write down a list of things you don’t like, and bury it.”
“Cut up a piece of junk mail and make a collage.”
“Go to the library to solve a problem.”
“Listen to an album all the way through without doing anything else.”
“Look into someone else’s eyes for five minutes without talking.”
Part novelty, part self-help guide, each page pairs the instruction with a related graphic and a literary quote selected from a book in Tamara and Jason’s personal library. Tear out one page a week for one year, and DESTROY THIS BOOK.
