Fifty Cars that Changed the World

Everything around us is designed. Design has the ability to transform environments, bring about social change, improve our quality of life. It can be exciting or frivolous, bold or subtle, daring or loud. The car is no exception. For more than a century, the car has adapted and transformed, and has been a remarkably powerful catalyst for change. But how much do we actually know about it? Fifty Cars That Changed the World explores the top 50 cars that have made a substantial impact in the world of design today. These cars are icons, as sculptural objects, products of avant-garde industrialism, remarkable pieces of engineering, or as symbols of national prestige. The cars in this book demonstrate the playful, emotional, seductive and technical aspects of design. From the 1908 Ford Model T to the 1998 smart car, the Lamborghini Miura to the Toyota Prius, this book encapsulates a century of car design, and allows you to explore the special place cars hold in design history.With stunning photography selected by the Design Museum, Fifty Cars that Changed the World is the perfect gift for design lovers and motoring enthusiasts of all ages.

Rhapsody in Green: A Novelist, an Obsession, a Laughably Small Excuse for a Garden

Charlotte Mendelson
Authors:
Charlotte Mendelson

'A witty account of 'extreme allotmenteering' for all obsessive gardeners' - Mail on Sunday 'An extremely entertaining and inspiring story of one woman's passionate transformation of a small, irregular shaped urban garden into a bountiful source of food.' - Woman & Home 'A gardening book like no other, this is the author's 'love letter' to her garden. She relays warm and witty stories about the trials and tribulations throughout her gardening year.' - Garden News '...this inspirational, funny book, written by someone who hankers after a homesteader's lifestyle, will make you look at even your window box in a new, more productive light.' - The Simple Things Gardening can be viewed as a largely pointless hobby, but the evangelical zeal and camaraderie it generates is unique. Charlotte Mendelson is perhaps unusually passionate about it. For despite her superficially normal existence, despite the fact that she has only six square metres of grotty urban soil and a few pots, she has a secret life. She is an extreme gardener, an obsessive, an addict. And like all addicts, she wants to spread the joy. Her garden may look like a nasty drunk old man's mini-allotment, chaotic, virtually flowerless, with weird recycling and nowhere to sit. When honoured friends are shown it, they tend to laugh. However, it is actually a tiny jungle, a minuscule farm, a wildly uneconomical experiment in intensive edible cultivation, on which she grows a taste of perhaps a hundred kinds of delicious fruits and odd vegetables. It is a source of infinite happiness and deep peace. It looks completely bonkers. Arguably, it's the most expensive, time-consuming, undecorative and self-indulgent way to grow a salad ever invented, but when tired or sad or cross it never fails to delight.
