A Keith Richards Guide to Etiquette for Polite Society

An illustrated pocket book

This etiquette zine is a visual response to Life, a Keith Richards autobiography. In the book, he forms opinions about people in uncommon situations—how one should behave while taking drugs, and what types of garments you can steal from your lover. Keith frequently refers to himself as a knight in shining armor, so this project presents him as a model for good behavior. Keith’s experiences are re-crafted using an etiquette book’s snobby verbiage, and childlike illustrations to reinforce his playful attitude.
