Peter Collingwood, for whom structure is a consuming interest, has selected over ninety objects from around the world, each of which he analyses in detail, revealing the inevitable beauty that can be achievedonly by a marriage between appropriate materials and ideal structure. In m any cases the structures have been evolved and perfected over centuries. All the objects, which range from Indian camel girths to the springs of a US army Jeep seat, from Japanese triaxial silk to Botswanan beer strainers, and from Omani sandsocks to a Tuareg hat, have been specially photographed byDavid Cripps to complement the author's analytical diagrams. Together they provide a book of outstanding visual appeal. Few people have the knowledge and experience to understand and analyze so wide a range of structures, bu t Peter Collingwood does so triumphantly, offering a unique insight into the balance of material and structure that should be the basis of all design"(from the dj). , Contents : One Single Element : Linking; Interlacing; Sim ple Looping; Interconnected Looping; Interlooping.
