McSweeney’s Publishes Portlandia Activity Book

portlandiabookMcSweeney’s has just published an activity book inspired by the popular television series Portlandia. The show’s creators Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein, and Jonathan Krisel authored the book. Sam Riley edited it.

“Like a cool high school classroom that prefers a sweat lodge to the traditional classroom, this book will expand your mind through participation, dehydrate you to a state of emotional rawness, then linger in the corners your bare soul,” explains the book’s description.¬†Activities involved in the book include, “How to Crowdfund Your Baby,” “Punk Paint By Numbers,” and “Terrarium Foraging.”

The book retails for $28.00 but is currently on sale for $23.00 on the McSweeney’s site.
