Product description


"When seen through the discriminating lens of author and photographer Brian Hayes, man-made objects appear as exquisite and natural as organic ones. Radar domes echo the beauty of a fly's eyes, a crop-irrigation rig takes on the twiggy grace of a praying mantis, and the miles of telephone towers and wires along US highways fuse into the western horizon." -- Elizabeth Svobada - Wired "Ample text explains the unfamiliar workings of blast furnaces, oil refineries, granite quarries and wind farms. Hundreds of photos provide helpful illustrations. . . . Artistry can be found in the strangest places." -- John J Miller - Wall Street Journal "Will help any technotourist to identify structures commonly encountered (if often overlooked) in outdoor urban habitats and industrial landscapes." -- Science "Brilliant . . . offering history and context . . . Infrastructure delivers on its promise to be the `book of everything' for our human-made American landscape." -- Jim Rossi - Grist
