Blank Slate: The Fashion and Self-Expression of Black Rock City

Blank Slate is a catalog about the Burning Man festival that is put on every summer in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada. This catalog talks about the event and the philosophies that the culture is built upon, and how these principles and the artistic nature of Burning Man has created a culture of unique DIY fashion and sense of self-expression unlike any other. In the spirit of Burning Man, the book comes in a wooden slip-cover, and is meant to be burned when the reader is finished with it.
