A Metaphor for Progress

Streamlined objects are part of everyday life. Over 600 remarkable photographs in this fascinating book illustrate both the degree to which streamlining has become a metaphor for progress as well as the variety of expressions of this phenomenon. Streamlining made design history by uniting previously unrelated components as a single homogeneous form Elements are ordered and fused into a new entity. The articles in this first solid appraisal of the subject discuss scientific, historical and cultural aspects in language nonspecialists can understand.
