The Industrial Design Reader

The Industrial Design Reader Lowest new price: $12.50
Lowest used price: $6.68
List price: $19.95
Brand: Carma Gorman

With input from a diverse range of industry experts/designers, theorists, critics, historians, and curators, this anthology is the first to focus exclusively on the history of industrial design. This pioneering guide traces the entire history of industrial design, industrialization, and mass production from 1850 until today. Sixty comprehensive essays written by designers, theorists, advertisers, historians, and curators detail the most crucial movements, issues, and accomplishments of industrial design. They combine news reports on the very first design workshops, aesthetic manifestos, lectures, and more from the biggest names in the field: William Morris, Henry Dreyfuss, and Victor Papanek, to name only a few. The Industrial Design Reader is an excellent resource for educators, students, and practicing designers. • Features design from not only theoretical and aesthetic perspectives, but also from a socio-political point of view, with texts from Karl Marx, Ralph Nader, and others • Copublished with the Design Management Institute, which will actively promote the book to its membership

Allworth Press, an imprint of Skyhorse Publishing, publishes a broad range of books on the visual and performing arts, with emphasis on the business of art. Our titles cover subjects such as graphic design, theater, branding, fine art, photography, interior design, writing, acting, film, how to start careers, business and legal forms, business practices, and more. While we don't aspire to publish a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are deeply committed to quality books that help creative professionals succeed and thrive. We often publish in areas overlooked by other publishers and welcome the author whose expertise can help our audience of readers.

Water: The Key to New Energy: Cavitating Electrolyzers & Zero-Point Energy

Water: The Key to New Energy: Cavitating Electrolyzers & Zero-Point Energy Lowest new price: $12.29
Lowest used price: $12.10
List price: $16.95
Author: Moray B. King

Physicist King expands, with diagrams, on how zero-point water energy can be used with the tremendous fluctuations of electrical field energy embedded within the fabric of space. King explains how gas emitted from popular water electrolyzer projects manifests unusual energetic anomalies, which include vaporizing tungsten when used in a welding torch, and running internal combustion engines on small quantities of the gas. Some claim to run generators in closed loop fashion solely on the gas from the electrolyzer, which is powered solely from the generator. Most investigators believe the energy comes from burning hydrogen. A hypothesis is proposed that the dominant energy does not come from hydrogen, but rather it comes from charged water gas clusters, which activate and coherently trap zero-point energy. Cavitating the water in the electrolyzers appears to maximize gas and energy production. Packed with diagrams, patents and photos.

Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers

Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers Lowest new price: $97.60
Lowest used price: $82.78
List price: $120.00
Author: Glen A. Mazur

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are increasing in use, and technicians in all fields must be familiar with the fundamentals of installing, programming, and troubleshooting digital and analog PLCs. Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers is a text/workbook that provides a solid foundation in PLC theory, installation, programming, operation, and troubleshooting. Many large, detailed drawings of commercial and industrial PLC systems are used to support the information in the textbook.

Although hands-on training on industrial equipment is the best training method, teaching the use of digital and analog PLCs is often a challenge because of the high costs of equipment. This training package provides several alternatives to these costs.
