A cornucopia of exciting materials is contained in the pages of a new book by Thames & Hudson. Called Material ConneXion - the global resource of new and innovative materials for architects, artists and designers, it is a showcase of the work of the Materials ConneXion library, set up by George Beylerian, one of the co-authors of the book. Called 'the guru of goo (and gels, mesh and resin)' by the New York Times, he created the organisation in New York in 1997 and now also oversees licensees in Cologne and Milan. Using crisp photography that gives an almost tactile quality to the glossy pages, the book shows materials arranged by type that could satisfy both longstanding needs and requirements you never realised you had.

Material ConneXion costs £36.
