Paperbacks: Making, By Thomas Heatherwick
The wunderkind of British design compares this magnificent survey of his 3-D creations to "putting flowers in a flower press".
Mostly, we can only gaze in delighted awe at such Heatherwickian creations as his innovative London bus, the British Pavilion at Shanghai consisting of 60,000 7.5metre acrylic "hairs", the transformation of a Newcastle square into "an ill-fitting carpet" revealing glints of iridescence and an Olympic cauldron that was "a manifestation of the way it was lit". But 10 brilliantly inventive Christmas cards show how we can all have a go.
