Maybe it's a remnant from an encyclopaedia-browsing childhood (or just early exposure to the Guinness Book of Records), but I still love chunky illustrated reference books – a taste for bulky blocks of print incompatible with the price per square foot of property anywhere in southern England. Earlier this year, I bought Dorling Kindersley's wonderful History Year by Year – nugget after shiny nugget of the human past over the millennia, all the way from the Great Rift Valley in Kenya to Silicon Valley in California. Checking the credits page, I found that the smart design work on this multi-handed monument of editing came from India, where publishers now often outsource not just routine office functions but almost every skilled task. DK began to operate in India even before the reference giant was swallowed by Penguin in 2000.

The original Land Rover is one of the all-time classic cars. Typically for a British product, it was also something of a glorious lash-up and compromise (although an inspired one). By the time it is replaced in 2015, the Land Rover will have been in production for nearly 70 years, a figure that exceeds automobilia's distinguished gerontocracy of the Model-T Ford, the Volkswagen, Mini and Porsche 911. It is an absolute and unchallenged masterpiece of industrial design.
