  • The 1000 Dot-to-Dot Book

    Fri, 26 Jul 2013 14:45

    blog image

    Thomas Pavitte has put together a unique collection of dot-to-dot drawings, all of them consisting of exactly 1,000 dots and taking a satisfyingly long time to complete. His unique style, recreating iconic people and portraits in dot form, results in images that are fun to join & cool enough to put on your wall.

    Thomas is a graphic designer from New Zealand. He recently started exploring other concepts with art and design, including the most complex dot-to-dot ever, a reconstruction of the Mona Lisa that features 6,239 dots & takes at least 9 hours to complete.

    Today is the 60th anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest. This book celebrates this most majestic of mountains, with exclusive access to the photographic imagery and private archives of celebrated climber and photographer George Lowe, the last surviving member of that triumphant expedition. This visually spectacular book features a trove of original photographs and other rare materials from the George Lowe collection, many unpublished, complemented by classic images from the final ascent. Stunning landscapes, candid portraits, and action shots describe the day-by-day moments of the historic expedition as never before. The extraordinary journey is retold from Lowe's point of view, capturing the drama of the expedition and the personal stories of those involved. In addition, earlier attempts at climbing the world's highest mountain and key later ascents are described. The book also includes contributions from an impressive team of mountaineers and explorers.

    Things Come Apart: A Teardown Manual for Modern Living

    blog imageWelcome to Todd McLellan's unique photographic vision of the material world: fifty design classics-arranged first by size and then by intricacy-are beautifully displayed, piece by piece, exploding in mid-air and dissected in real-time, frame-by-frame video stills. This book makes visible the inner workings of some of the world's most iconic designs. From SLR camera to mantel clock to espresso machine, from iPad to bicycle to grand piano, every single component of each object is revealed. These disassembled objects show that even the most intricate of modern technologies can be broken down and understood, while beautifully illustrating the quality and elegance of older designs. Stunning photography is interspersed with essays by notable figures from the worlds of restoration, DIY, and design innovation who discuss historical examples of teardowns, disassembly, and reverse-engineering. Each photograph is itself a work of art and offers a reinterpretation of our familiar world. They connect people with the child-like joy of taking something apart to see how it works and will appeal to anyone with a curiosity about the material world.
