Making visible the inner workings of some of the world’s most familiar designs, the book THINGS COME APART. A Teardown Manual for Modern Living reconnects you with the child-like joy of taking something apart to see how it works - guaranteed to appeal to anyone with a curiosity about the material world.

Welcome to Todd McLellan’s unique photographic vision of the material world: fifty design classics - arranged first by size, and then by intricacy - are beautifully displayed, piece by piece, exploding in midair, or dissected in real-time frame-by-frame video stills.

From swiss army knife to sewing machine, MacBook to microwave, accordion to aeroplane, each photograph is itself a work of art, and offers a reinterpretation of our familiar world. Every single component of each object is revealed. In addition, a component count vividly illustrates how technology has decreased in size while growing in complexity.
