This review is from: Humble Masterpieces: Everyday Marvels of Design (Paperback)
This book could be a guessing game. Look at the close-up photo and see if you can guess what humble, everyday object it is (don't peek at the text). The color and textures and shape in the photos are gorgeous on their own.
The book features 100 ordinary objects for their special designs. The book originates from a 2004 exhibition of the same title at MOMA. It celebrates objects familiar (scissors, lipstick, zipper, ballpoint pen, coffee cozy) to all of us.
