Both beautifully illustrated and highly informative, this volume presents a comprehensive listing of contemporary innovative materials, selected by a committee associated with Beylerian's consulting agency, depicting each material with a scintillating color photo and a concise description of its properties. The materials were chosen as being of interest to architects, artists, and designers of all types, including fashion, interior, product, graphic, automotive, and cosmetics-packaging. The materials are grouped into seven sections: carbon-based, cement, ceramics, glass, metals, natural, and polymers, with a short introduction to each section summarizing the physical properties and basic details of production. A glossary, bibliography, and listing of trade shows and professional publications are included. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
