Drawn from 35 years of publishing trusted how-to books, this visual volume gathers entertaining and practical step-by-step knowledge from Storey Publishing’s wide-ranging library, covering topics from gardening and animal husbandry to wilderness survival skills, home repair and improvement, cooking, and self-care.


"For decades, Storey Publishing has been teaching curious readers how to “garden, farm, cook, craft, build, fix, and heal.” Now the “makers and doers” at Storey have compiled some of their favorite projects in this how-to book of how-to books, which couldn't have come at a better moment... So much has been canceled or postponed lately, but the excitement for learning new things doesn't have to be one of them. Storey’s Curious Compendium provides readers with the perfect book to spark a new interest or passion and have a lot of fun along the way." — Booklist, starred review
