Have you ever wondered what an iPad or a radio is made of? Or what’s inside a SLR camera, or a piano? We have, too.
For all you curious guys out there, we recommend a new book, conceptualized and put together by an innovative author by the name of Todd McLellan. Just out of the printers, Things Come Apart: A Teardown Manual for Modern Living is a remarkable attempt at understanding modern and older technology, by disassembling and breaking things apart, to show how even the most intricate designs are not in the least unreachable even for the non-professionals among us.
The book simply breeds curiosity through the quality of the pictures, organized by size and intricacy and intertwined with commentaries by notable figures from the fields of restoration, DIY, and design innovation who discuss historical examples of disassembly, and reverse-engineering.
The 50 stunning photos simply appeal to the child in all of us, eager to discover and have a more detailed understanding of the world around us.
