Welcome to Todd McLellan’s unique photographic vision of the material world. This updated edition of the bestselling Things Come Apart captures the wonder of how things come apart better than ever, showcasing twelve ambitious new projects of some of the coolest new tech around, additional photography to further illustrate each of the text contributions, and an even higher total component count of 27,787 individual parts.

From SLR camera to mantle clock, from espresso machine to 3D printer, and from a chainsaw to some of the coolest new tech around, every single component of each object is made visible. In addition to showcasing the quality and elegance of older designs, these disassembled objects show that even the most intricate modern technologies can be broken down and understood. Stunning photography is interspersed with newly illustrated essays by notable figures from the world of restoration, DIY and design innovation, who discuss historical examples of teardowns, disassembly and reverse engineering. Things Come Apart conjures the childlike joy of taking something apart to see how it works, and will appeal to anyone with a curiosity about the material world.
