The book seemed to strike a chord with Dan, and rather than any formal kind of brief we instead spent a long time discussing the most interesting materials and objects, and the broader messages we wanted to convey: that these mundane bits and pieces were actually packed with incredible stories; that, deep down, all of the materials of which they’re made are connected; that looked at for their material qualities, the most familiar objects can become amazingly beautiful and strange; that taken all together, the material world is an astonishing human achievement. Beyond that, the most important thing was that Dan felt he had the freedom to run with the project and create something unique.
