Series Review
Making functional items adds a layer of rigor, as use factors impose limitations on form. No matter how much you want to make a water bottle out of sequined net, you are going to need a watertight layer. Rather than listing detailed steps, these books provide general guidance and thoughtful nudges to spur decisions about size, materials, needs, and appearance. Testing, adjusting, and retesting are treated with as much importance as initial design. Failure is clearly built into the process. Going back to the drawing board process, though frustrating, is a natural and essential part of designing objects and discovering methods that work. Constructing—or attempting to construct—a functional item can be a window into the objects that surround us. These good-looking guides make acquiring these insights fun while offering helpful advice. VERDICT Great pictures and friendly text combine the fun of creation with the challenge of engineering.
