And here is the first e-book ‘OpenWear. Sustainability, Openness and P2P production in the world of fashion’ written by Bertram Niessen, Oleg Koefoed, Lise Skov, Zoe Romano, Alessandro Delfanti on the behalf of last year’s established open source fashion and maker community Openwear.
Openwear gathers via its online space small fashion producers, makers, designers, stylists, students, interns, tailors, photographers, models, crafters, sewing cafes, silk-screen printers, fashion schools and others. The concept is based on shareable and open sourcing culture emphasizing DIY concepts .
My next free e-book is AbstractHacktivism – The Making of Hacker Culture by Otto von Busch and Karl Palmås. A must book in every (e-)library.
If you’re trying to find some time for yourself,von Busch’s book ‘Post-script to Fashion-able, or a methodological appendix to activist design research‘ is also highly recommendable for winter days. Enjoy good reading!
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted the first recommendation in Readaholic… Thus, enjoy the world of prototyping and creating some clothing based on wirez, fabric and electricity with the help of free e-book Open softwear – fashionable prototyping and wearable computing using the Arduino.
