Humble Masterpieces: Everyday Marvels of Design

Humble Masterpieces: Everyday Marvels of Design - Paola Antonelli, Francesco Mosto Gorgeous photos of simple elegant things. The heads of crochet hooks never looked so good. Each closeup photo is accompanied by a brief history of its invention, inventors and a little bit about it and then another smaller picture of the whole item. Who knew there was a Bubble wrap appreciation day on the last Monday of January? Great inspirations for photographing every day things. Sugar cubes. Slinkies. UPC barcodes. Coffee cup sleeves. Glass marbles. Bottle caps. Aluminum ice cream scoop. Chopsticks.
