"How the other half lives" has been published with the help of a crowdfunding campaign, a big thank you to all funders!

The book was printed in Berlin by Hinkelstein, a socialist cooperative owned by the workers, 100% free of hierarchies.

Circle matt, the paper used in the book, is a real recycling-paper, meaning that it has actually been made from what we throw in the paper-garbage.

You can still check the crowdfunding-site where you'll find a lot of information about the production process.
