Things Come Apart

If you have a child-like joy of taking something apart, we think youŽll enjoy this. The new book "Things Come Apart" by Todd McLellan, is a unique photographic vision of the material world, a teardown manual for modern living. The book is illustrated with inspiring and unique photographs of retro to modern daily items, in a dismantled, meticulously arranged form. Each photograph is itself a work of art, 181 color photos illustrate 50 design classics from a Pentax SLR camera, a espresso machine, a bicycle to an iPad and grand piano, all arranged first by size and then by intricacy. Crazy but amazing.
