Animal logic by Richard Barnes( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Animal Logic, Barnes's first monograph, collects four related species of his photographic work that touch on themes relevant to science, history, archaeology, and architecture. Through his lens sights and objects normally hidden from public view - half-installed dioramas, partially wrapped specimens, anatomical models, exploded skulls, and taxidermied animals in shipping crates - take on a strange beauty.

"Design as Future-Making is a collection of essays by an international roster of leading designers and theorists who share a new understanding of design as a socio-material practice embedded within a multiplicity of ways of making the world. Issues such as social justice, environmental health, political agency, education, and even the right to pleasure and play, are customarily thought of as dematerialised ideas and values. Yet, each of those realms of daily life are affected by - indeed, determined by - their physical and virtual contexts. Design as Future-Making argues that design is not only integral to social issues, but it is also an integrated mode of thought and action - one that variously draws on and informs disciplines such as philosophy, sociology, anthropology, political science, and psychology"--
