Tools: Extending our Reach
'An expansive, Stone-Age-to-Space-Age survey' - The Financial Times
A beautiful coffee table book about tools
We use a lot of tools every day. Some save us time and help make our lives easier, while others have helped us achieve amazing feats, forever changing the way we do things.
This book from Cooper Hewitt delves into these under appreciated objects through vivid images, authoritative essays and a striking design from designer Irma Boom. Spanning some 1.85 million years, this handsome book explores the use and design of tools from an artificial heart to Eskimo snow goggles carved from fossil ivory. The perfect gift for anyone interested in design.
