Monograph on one of America's key innovators of the 20th century. Introduced by Norman Foster and Luis Fernández-Galiano, the life and work of engineer, author, designer and inventor Buckminster 'Bucky' Fuller is celebrated and assessed in terms of legacy and inspiration. Illustrated with photography, drawings, plans and unseen ephemera, Fuller's breath-taking span of creative initiatives is explored, including early housing designs that used cable and pulley systems, the mythical Dymaxion Car that anticipates today's aeronautical advances, and Fuller's most fertile structural invention – the Geodesic Domes that earned him a Time magazine cover in 1964

John Maus is one of the most intriguing artists in the millennial wave of lo-fi pop, assembling his unique and intimate language from synth pop, disco, baroque classical and church music. Yet Maus's work is much more than another exercise in retroist hybridity, and his overtures on truth and love are, upon further listening, no mere ironic posturing. Does Maus have something to teach us about arriving at the truth through personal musical expression,
or is he on a doomed Romantic adventure? Has he really discovered Heaven - and can he take us there?
