Every great invention starts as a simple idea. That simple idea needs to be conveyed to others, and that’s where sketches and blueprints come in. Gadgets, Games and Gizmos: 122 Inventions that Changed the World is a compendium of those original designs, sharing them for everything from the iconic Coke bottle to Mr. Potato Head. If you’re a design fan or a budding inventor, it will become a source of great inspiration. Set for release mid-next year, the book by Jean-Marie Donat will give you insight into the complexity of things as seemingly simple as the paperclip. You can pre-order now and expect a surprise in nine months.
