I first bought this book at an art show and have raved about it to every designer I know! The editors at Frame Magazine scoured the world to compile a list of 150 new and interesting architectural materials. Material World 2 is easy to utilize and gives correct (thank you!) contact information for the companies producing these innovative materials. Large scale, colorful photographs make this a great gift for any fan of design^sprout.
