Abstract:

It all began in when a pair of friends burned an eight-foot-tall effigy on Baker Beach in San Francisco in front of an impromptu audience of twenty. Two decades later Burning Man has evolved into a dazzling annual extravaganza dedicated to radical self-reliance and radical self-expression, attracting nearly forty thousand people. These revelersan eclectic mix of punks, geeks, families, ravers, grad students, gearheads, hippies, and touriststurn the ancient lakebed of Nevada¹s Black Rock Desert into a bustling city that exists for one glorious week before disappearing in a cloud of ashes and dust. Burning Book is both a loving commemoration of the event¹s storied history and an enlightening companion for festivalgoers. Bruder explores the unique ethos and breathtaking art installations that have shaped the event, along with Black Rock City¹s distinctive landmarks, pranks, lore, and gift-based economy. Illustrated with more than three hundred stunning photographs, Burning Book is a striking tribute to an extraordinary cultural phenomenon for the legions who participate in Burning Man every year, and for those who haven¹t become part of this unforgettable celebration yet.
