The Handyman Book
This inventive and slightly deceptive gadget is a counter-balance to the millions of pages of DIY instructional material and websites with advice on how to complete household tasks. The Handyman Book is no ordinary book — in fact, it’s not a book at all.
It features no information and no pages at all — rather, it is a toolbox disguised as a book, with tools ranging from a multi-headed screwdriver to a socket set and pliers.
It contains all the tools anyone will ever need to get those little — and sometimes bigger — DIY jobs done around the house and stores them neatly when finished.
