The Manser Practice is producing an occasional series of booklets called Material Matters.

The latest, titled Metal, contains '16 off-beat picture stories to refresh your interest'. Ranging around London over the last 150 years, the 16 brief texts are 'hymns' by Martin Spring to items as diverse as cast-iron pillar boxes, Brunel's Paddington station arches (right), steel louvres and Hopkins' gun-metal brackets at Bracken House. Each also has a photograph by Nobuko Kobayashi, funded by a bursary from the practice.
