It is not the aim of this Introduction, or even of this special issue, to give a comprehensive account of the history and development of Do It Yourself activity per se. To achieve such an aim would take far more space than is available here. There remains, however, a need to expand the existing canon of works, as relatively little has been written on the subject of DIY from a design historical perspective.
