Enhance your purchase
Frequently bought together
"For any creative who has had to cater to corporate dimwits in order support their art, here's a terrific guide to bringing your best work into the commercial sphere without selling out or compromising your craft. This is a book about how to break free from the data-driven expectations of your client's spreadsheet, and retrieve the true novelty that makes you valuable in the first place." - Douglas Rushkoff, author of Team Human
"This book is extremely timely. The pandemic has obliged everybody to stay online almost all the time. Offline Matters reminds us that life is (also) elsewhere. The neologism 'offline', which did not exist twenty years ago, has philosophical relevance. This book is hoping we can discover it." - Franco 'Bifo' Berardi, philosopher, theorist and activist
"Today we are all called upon to be the content providers of our own lives. This can be exhausting and estranging. Fortunately Jess Henderson has arrived to help us get offline, not into the pasts but into the presence of our lives. With compassion and humour Henderson brings us back to ourselves and it turns out we are not predestined to be profiled and branded. Offline Matters is the mutual help book we need right now!" - Stefano Harney, co-author of The Undercommons: Fugitive Planning and Black Study
"Jess has written a kind of outsider/artist/creative/inventor SURVIVAL MANUAL for our over-amped, information-overloaded, hypercommunicative age. Anyone seeking encouragement, inspiration, moral support, and IDEAS would do well to study these pages, preferably in a solitary room with no music playing and no laptop showing 'news' (or a cellphone constantly pinging). Electronics in another room, please!" - V. Vale, founder of RE/Search and Search & Destroy
"Offline Matters couldn't come at a more important and critical juncture in our human existence...The insights within this book highlight the current creative plight we've gotten ourselves into and the cracks within many cultural and societal pillars.
This book is a great step in helping us reclaim and reconsider our roles within the current structures we've all been players within. Many of us can read along nodding in agreement and the examples surely represent thoughts we've embraced at some point. But this book isn't about reprimanding us so much as help us understand how we can move forward. We've become so subservient to other factors out in the world and this is a stern reminder to take back control of something that can provide an immense amount of personal and community value." - Eugene Kan, co-founder of MAEKAN and Hypebeast
"Consider this book a rehabilitation program for a creative thinking populace unknowingly addicted to vain online activity. Through these influential pages, Henderson bestows upon their readers the tools necessary to free one's mind from the constraints of the virtual realm so they may focus instead on something much more important...reality." - James T. Padlow, THE PEN NAME
"I have followed Jess' writing since she created Outsider; an anarchic newsletter/witty commentary against the establishment, and its pervasive contentment with the same old marketing bullshit. I waited in anticipation, sometimes for months, to receive news from the trenches...Just like the white space between the lines in a book, it was like reading every unspoken truth, every unheard sigh, every roll of the eyes in our industry. Someone had to say it and thank god it was Jess. We need this book." - Alvaro Sotomayor, Creative Director at WEIDEN+KENNEDY
