Things Come Apart, A Teardown Manual for Modern Living

Here is something cool for my 6 year old nephew. A book called Things Come Apart, Canadian photographer Todd McLellan painstakingly disassembles 50 everyday objects, including a tiny Swiss Army knife and a single engine aircraft, and carefully photographs the results. Essays by noted DIY repair gurus like Kyle Wiens provide context for the pictures, but the main attraction is getting to see the 21,959 components that make up the most iconic products of the last 100 years.
