Make it Last: Prolonging and Preserving What We Love

by Raleigh Briggs - £8.99  Microcosm Publishing (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781934620984 | ISBN 10: 193462098x

Make It Last: Prolonging and Preserving What We Love bridges the gap between life in a disposable culture and the basic skills needed to save money and live more sustainably. This book teaches you how to extend the lives of the things you love by repairing clothing, preserving home-grown food, and even repairing your kitchen sink. Raleigh Briggs takes her longtime commitment to community building through the DIY movement and shares her valuable experience with the reader through a conversational tone in her hand drawn and illustrated guide.
 
The Utne Reader described Raleigh's work as A forceful antidote to the cheapening of thrift culture: a meticulously hand-lettered, pint-size volume. When you raise your fist against the values that derailed our economy, lift this book in it. Now you can save money and save the planet while saving your prized possessions!
