A collection of different booklets showing different ways of visualizing the concept of the billion, hoping to help people understand how large it actually is; and by extension a comment on the power that billionaires have. The kit is designed to be able to be made with very minimal materials and effort, and is made in reference to the ideals of the 'Whole Earth Catalog' and other meta manuals; in fact, the box was actually just a cardboard scrap I found and used.
