Tinkerer’s Handbooks now available

Perhaps you have enjoyed the “Nominally-Essential Tinkerer’s Handbook,” my eight-page series celebrating the inability to leave well enough alone.

Now, I’m pleased to announce that you if you get one of my Builder’s, Crafter’s, Maker’s Rules posters, or my Engineering: It’s Like Math (But Louder) shirts, you can add on a pocket-sized version of the full Tinkerer’s Handbook! You can also get one with Jeph Jacques’ Science is a Verb Now shirt.

The pocket version is a full 12 pages (I added some new stuff to make the printing easier) and makes a perfect stocking stuffer for that person in your life who doesn’t see the problem with getting sawdust all over the kitchen counter.


We’ve got a new Volume 2 infographic and multi-themed Prediction Card Sets over at Machine of Death! If you’d like to help us game-test some new MOD card games developed by our cadre of volunteer testers, I’m holding another play session tomorrow afternoon (Saturday the 15th) in Los Angeles. You’re invited! More about that here; please RSVP if you’d like to come! UPDATE: We’re full up for this round! Thanks everyone!

  1. AH! I want the handbook very badly, but not a poster, and not an engineering shirt. Will you be actually producing the “the insides of things are beautiful” t-shirt in the future? Would that be something we could add the handbook to? Or could it be added to other merchandise?

    DM: The “insides of things” shirt will be coming in a bit, yes! And the handbook will be available with it. Not sure when the shirts will be in — maybe around the beginning of November?

  2. Dang it. I got the poster when you were at the warehouse (thanks for signing it!) and would have loved the pocket book. Is it available separately?

    DM: Right now it’s not available separately, but I’ll post a note if it becomes so!

  3. Another 1+ to having the handbook available separately. I already purchased the poster (instantly when it came out) and, to be honest, don’t wear tshirts. But I would love a handbook.

  4. I already have the poster and though I might get “the insides of things” shirt, I’d get two copies of the booklet–one for me and one for my dad, from whom I learned the love of tinkering–so count me as another who’d like to buy it separately!
