Bik van der Pol presented a selection of 140 books from Loompanics Unlimited publishers, Washington. Out of business since 2006, this publishing house had for decades published manuals that â€˜your mother and the state would rather you didnâ€™t readâ€™. Subjects varied from practical handbooks on â€˜How to Develop a Low- Cost Family Food- Storage Systemâ€™ to less generally acceptable publications as â€˜Gourmet Cannabis Cookeryâ€™ and controversial self-help books as â€˜How to Start Your Own Countryâ€™, â€˜Homemade Guns and Homemade Armsâ€™, or â€˜How to Clear Your Adult and Juvenile Criminal Recordsâ€™. Users are invited to read the publications and make copies of the manuals, meaning they can follow instructions and realise projects on their own.
To allow users free access to material, bypassing reproduction rights and encouraging them to use the manuals themselves.
