Show Me How: 500 Things You Should Know
Instructions for Life From the Everyday to the Exotic
Show Me How is a beautiful book by ‘The Curiosity Shoppe’ Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom. It’s a work of art and a feast for the eye, where virtually every piece of modern life essentials, from ‘wrap a temaki sushi’ to ‘hug a hedgehog’, is presented in a highly informative step-by-step graphics.
In this charming book, the pictures tell the story. Got something you wanna learn? Chances are, it’s in there! Readers learn how to do hundreds of useful and fascinating and important and sometimes downright bizarre tasks.
There are 11 chapters: Make, Eat, Drink, Style, Love, Nest, Grow, Thrive, Go, Survive, and Wow. Each one is jam-packed with amazing illustrations showing you how to do everything from treat a snake bite to tell time with a potato clock, wiring a lamp to building a wilderness shelter, twist balloon animals to planting an edible garden.
This book would be fun to look through with kids, but it is actually written for adults. The detailed illustrations and icons are beautifully drawn, providing a delightful read for every child or design enthusiast, for that matter. I could spent hours looking through it!
