"The book reads not as an archive of past triumphs, but an objective attempt by Barber and Osgerby to comprehend the direction of their travel so far... The book avoids many of the tropes of the contemporary design monograph... An interesting way of doing things and one that speaks directly to two of the studio's key concerns: an obsession with process and an urgent need to collaborate... Barber and Osgerby [...] are obsessive students of the shared endeavour of the making process. Both the visual and written evidence relayed in the book reveals that the pair are skilled draughtsman and prototypers... Compelling."-Blueprint"Inspiring." -Tribu-te Magazine
