Todd McLellan breaks down 50 design classics, old and new, into their tiniest components for Things Come Apart: A Teardown Manual for Modern Living from Thames & Hudson. Arranged by size and intricacy, each image beautiful in its ordered disassembled form.
From iPads to Blackberry phones, Raleigh bikes to laptops, even a Zenith CH 650 aircraft, all are revealed down to the last screw, some shot flat, others displayed as if exploding in midair. Accompanied by essays written from ‘notable figures from the worlds of restoration, DIY, and design innovation’, the book explores one man’s obsession with how objects work, from inside out. Check the gallery for a peek inside the book.
