The Idler: No 47 Cultivate Yourself

£29.99

Product description

The publication's intention is to return dignity to the art of loafing, to make idling into something to aspire towards rather than reject.

THE 47th issue of the annual Idler periodical is themed around education, gathering a number of its finest writers and speakers to produce this cloth-bound edition featuring interviews with the newly idle Jeremy Paxman and Tim Burgess, plus essays on Stoicism, Nietzsche, anarchist Bakunin, self-defence system Bartitsu, pranks and old school curriculum, the Trivium. Tom Hodgkinson introduces their campaign for the four day week with an essay outlining the history of the various campaigns over the years for a more leisure-filled life. Plus you can read the hilarious and brilliant Lucy Cooke on her favourite animal, the sloth. Every essay is designed to help you work out that tricky question: how to live.

THIS BOOK IS ONE OF A LIMITED EDITION OF 100 AND SIGNED BY THE FOUNDER AND EDITOR, TOM HODGKINSON.
