No Thing So Ordinary

No Thing So Ordinary

This book is inspired by a quotation from the physicist Lee Smolin and features digitally created images of ordinary things, such as water and magnetic fields, and highlights quotations from other scientists over the centuries who have found wonder, joy and inspiration from the study of such things.

Printed on Bockingford watercolour paper, this book is bound with a piano hinge that disassembles to reveal a hidden internal structure and message.  The hinge is a glass test tube, which is to be filled by the owner with a selection of ordinary objects which they find wonderful.

The book is contained in a hand-made box.

There is no thing so ordinary that its contemplation cannot lead to a wordless sense of wonder and gratitude just to be part of it all
