This extraordinary book makes visible the inner complexity of some of the world's most iconic products. Photographer Todd McLellan disassembles mechanical relics such as the typewriter and modern gadgets such as the iPad, before laying them out and photographing them in meticulously detailed arrangements, or capturing them in an exploded form, the individual pieces frozen in mid-air. Essays by people who work within the world of disassembly and restoration accompany each chapter.
This fascinating book showcases unique photos of 50 design classics in a dismantled, meticulously rearranged form--including an iPad, grand piano and an espresso machine.
