Sign o’ the times? Of COURSE a webcomicker wrote a book on living well frugally. Spike “Templar, AZ” Trotman wrote and Diana Nock illustrated POORCRAFT, which was funded on Kickstarter (in 2009!) of course.
Poorcraft follows a young woman (“Penny”) who has mastered “the fine art of living well on less.” Each chapter includes Penny’s tips on how to make a budget and spend it wisely on housing, food, education, entertainment and the like.
Poorcraft bills itself as “the essential comic book guide to practical urban and suburban frugality.” It’s on sale now for $10, and publisher (Iron Circus Comics) offers an excerpt on its site.
