industrial design techniques and materials Oct 29, 2007
beautifully bound book in 'metallic' finish. Interesting reading to students and professionals alike. A good reference worth adding to any library. tom p.
How products are REALLY produced. Mar 26, 2007
This is not the Fluff and Baby Powder of other Industrial Design books. It actually explains how things get made. Strongly recommended reading for Designers, so you have some notion of what goes on inside the factory. It isn't an engineering text, but it give designers some strong insight into their world.
