This is Generation DIY — Huck's first book is a treasure trove of advice on how to lead a creative life from inspiring indie icons – from Douglas Coupland and Spike Jonze to Miranda July and Kim Gordon. See it come to life.

Huck’s first book Paddle Against the Flow is a bible of creative advice from 60 inspirational ‘doers’ – from Kim Gordon to Kelly Slater to Ralph Steadman.

Paddle Against The Flow is for a generation who—faced with harsh economic realities—make things happen by studying craftsmanship on YouTube, raising funding on Kickstarter or finding ways to create and collaborate from the bottom up. This is Generation DIY.

See the book come to life as an audio-visual extravaganza above, featuring Huck.TV footage from our video stories on art, music, skateboarding, activism, photography and more.

Join us for the Paddle Against the Flow launch party at Huck’s 71a Gallery, Leonard Street, London EC2A 4QS, on Thursday March 19, 6-9 pm. RSVP here.

Paddle Against the Flow is out now via Chronicle Books and available from a bunch of places including usAmazonUrban OutfittersChapters IndigoHardie Grant, and Hugendubel.
