Publisher - Lulu

Summary
Lulu says "Low-tech Magazine underscores the potential of past and often forgotten technologies and how they can inform sustainable energy practices.

Sometimes, past technologies can be copied without any changes. More often, interesting possibilities arise when older technology is combined with new knowledge and new materials, or when past concepts and traditional knowledge are applied to modern technology. "
