Finally got my copy of Ed Templeton’s newest booklet ‘Drinking the Kool-Aid’. Echoing a non-judgmental attitude to his environs with brushes, camera and text, Templeton presents a document of today’s youth culture. Preserved amongst the pages of ‘Drinking the Kool-Aid’ is the do-it-yourself ethos of the skate and punk culture from which Templeton hails. The book fuctions as a whole due to its seamless presentation of collage, illustration, painting and photography. Also noteworthy is the complete vision of Templeton’s experience as he has created, designed and edited the booklet himself. More can be seen from the ‘Preview’ post here.

Copies can be purchased at the  Mörel Books website while available.
