“In 1968 Stewart Brand launched an innovative publication called The Whole Earth Catalog. It was groundbreaking, enlightening, and spawned a group of later publications.”

Steve Jobs called it the precursor to Google, as its aim was to provide ‘access to tools’ for living a sustainable, self sufficient life. Everything from where to source your loom to how to build a geodesic dome to live in. It featured the image of the earth from space on its cover for the first time.
