The second issue of Works that Work, a publication that dissects the impact of design advances, has an impressive list of practical design topics. In the space of a single book the editors manage to cover handmade soccer balls all over the world, the rise of the Boeing 747, globalization in the context of the shipping container, and a study of sometimes poorly concealed cell phone towers.

Issue 2 is available digitally and in print directly from Works that Work.
