Manual 17 Explores How Disability Is the Rule, Not the Exception

“The usual stories about disability teach us that disability is the exception when in fact it is the rule,” writes Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, introducing freshly published Manual 17. The credo carries through the issue of the RISD Museum periodical (its theme: ‘variance’), which includes a rumination on how body mods and tattoos are a form of Crip Futurism, and an ode to the ingenuity of the plywood leg splint Charles and Ray Eames designed during WW2 (1941-2, image).
