Description: Paul Eluard's well-known remark, "There are other worlds, but they're all in this one" borrows from a tradition that supposes the co-existence and simultaneity of different planes of creation. It is from this starting point that Fabio Morabito has written about tools common to every man: the hammer, the screw, the file, the sponge, etc. but with ingenious insight to each of their very specific and glorious characters. The author creates a wonderful new world where "a sponge is amoral, " "a screw is a great opportunist." where "oil is water with hips." and "a hammer works by surprise." Toolbox is a book like no other, playfully examining the role each tool plays and the place each has in relation to one another and in the world. These essays beg to be read aloud as they manipulate language as a tool in and of itself with hilarious results. After reading Morabito's brilliant essays, you will never blithely soak up a spill with a sponge, hammer a nail into a wall, tie up a package with string, or use your knife to cut a steak quite the same way again. Fantastical line drawings interpreting the various qualities of each tool make this a delightfully eccentric volume.
