Kelli Anderson’s books are proof that there’s a tonne of things you can do with paper and imagination. After the wild success of This Book Is A Camera, a book that literally turned into a functional pinhole camera, Brooklyn-based artist/designer and tinkerer Kelli Anderson’s next book explores the mysteries of the physical world with more paper-based experiments. This Book Is A Planetarium features a pop-up planetarium that you can activate with your phone’s flashlight, a spiralgraph that teaches children the infinite wonders of geometric art, a stringed instrument that lets you understand how acoustic chambers work and how strings make sound, a passive amplifier that uses a cone to magnify the sound from your phone, and a perpetual calendar that allows you to view the Gregorian calendar of any given year!
A wonderful gift for children (even the ones at heart) with an inclination towards curiosity, This Book Is A Planetarium allows kids to unlock small mysteries of the universe, and prompts them to question phenomena around them, helping them expand their knowledge base and eventually their wings!

The first time you lay eyes on the Claw, it’s bafflingly small. What’s more baffling, however, is its incredibly vast feature list. It opens bottles and jars, unscrews screws, cuts open taped boxes, undoes staples, works as a flint-scraper, and acts as a tiny, nifty, jimmying tool. By design, it fits all those features into a frame that’s basically the size of your thumbnail, and by construction, it does so tirelessly, because the Claw is made entirely from titanium.
At less than an inch long, the Claw (an apt name, given its claw-shape and concealed nature) is smaller than a 1¢ coin, making it officially the world’s smallest multitool. It sits on your keyring, weighing a forgettable 2 grams, so you can have your EDC with you without even feeling its presence, until you need it. Use it to crack open bottles at parties, to unbox gifts you got during the holidays, jimmy open lids on jars of paint that are stuck shut, or even use it as a flathead screwdriver to tighten rogue screws around the house or outside. When not in use, it sits among your keys, perpetually accessible to you (it’s even TSA approved, so you can carry it on flights too). The grade 5 titanium build ensures it’ll last long enough to be passed down to your great-grandchildren… which would be infinitely cool if we had bottled drinks or flathead screws in the year 2100. Go ahead and grab a Claw for yourself now (with free international shipping!)
