    New Edition (2016) and how it differs from previous editions, January 2, 2017

    This review is from: Industrial Design A-Z (Hardcover)
    I teach with this book, and have been eagerly awaiting this revised edition. It does not disappoint! The Fiells have done their usual excellent work updating the book. There are new entries, existing entries that had aged have been refreshed, and tough decisions about what to eliminate to make room for the progress have been made gracefully. Because my students will wonder if older editions are comparable, I assume others will be curious, so here are the obvious changes:
    The new edition is about 40 pages longer than previous versions. There are 32 new entries to update and improve the content. Some are necessary and expected (to satisfy the Yves Béhar, Marc Newson, and Karim Rashid fans), while some are added to strengthen the historical narrative (Portsmouth Block Mills, Charles Babbage). The price tag for this new content is the 30 entries that have been removed. A careful reader might lament the loss of some (NASA, Sharp, Rubbermaid, Trevor Baylis…) but it would be impossible to complain about the decisions, as the book remains an excellent overview of industrial design in a publishing landscape that offers so few good options. Nearly 20 entries have been substantially updated to bring their subjects into the decade since the book was last revised.
    One other advantage is printing technology; this edition is in full color, and it makes what was already a visual celebration even more satisfying. Even the pictures of designers and patent reproductions benefit from richer tones. All entries that used to have black and white images have been upgraded to full color pictures.
    This is a LOT of book and a lot of great writing, editing, and information for the price, and remains a clear choice for learning about industrial design and its history.

    Not the most current volume, but reasonably priced. If you’re interested in Industrial Design or product design in general, you can’t go wrong with this. There are a lot of references to ‘landmark’ products that are not shown, but if you read it with your tablet next to you, like I do, you can be as deep as you wish. If you are into digging information, one page can branch out into multiple dimensions of learning when using along a tablet or laptop. Consider it an index, rather than an all-encompassing bible.
