This book collects previously published material by the engineer Patrick Bellew spanning through a 20 years period. Interviews, conference papers, magazine articles and short essays were researched and edited.
The text, together with graphics and a series of illustrations produced specifically for this book, resulted in a 260 page publication. The content is structured by technical themes, this organisation helps the book to achieve the aim of documenting and revealing the philosophy behind the engineer's design ideas.
Great care was put into the printing and binding process. Papers of different weights, colours and textures are used to reinforce the organisational structure of the book.
