A tool kit, done in AZ form, for understanding the world around us through the way we design and use things. Covering subjects that range from authenticity to Grand Theft Auto to Dieter Rams, Deyan Sudjics latest book has been called "a master class in musing on modern design." Though it is organized in AZ format, it is not a dictionary or an encyclopedia in the strictest sense. Rather, it is an essential tool kit for understanding the world through emblematic examples, both historic and contemporary, from the field of design. In standalone chapters, Sudjic explores concepts as a whole, specific movements, or specific objects and people.
