Open Circuits: The Inner Beauty of Electronic Components

AUTHOR Schlaepfer, Eric; Oskay, Windell
PUBLISHER No Starch Press (11/01/2022)
PRODUCT TYPE Hardcover (Hardcover)

Description
Open Circuits is a photographic exploration of the beautiful design inside everyday electronics. Its stunning cross-section photography unlocks a hidden world full of elegance, subtle complexity, and wonder.

Our phones, computers, and appliances are made of hundreds of internal components, each precisely engineered to perform a certain function, but none intended to actually be seen. Through painstakingly executed, vividly detailed cross-section photography, Open Circuits reveals the surprising--and often accidental--beauty hiding inside the electronic components that drive our everyday devices.

From resistors to LEDs, USB cables to headphone jacks, stepper motors to nixie tubes, the book's arresting imagery transforms more than 130 components into delightful works of art. As you visually dissect the components' insides, you'll learn about how they work and how they were made. Open Circuits has something for everyone to appreciate, whether you're a seasoned electrical engineer, an amateur tinkerer, or simply a lover of art and photography.
