In 2005, Tim McCreight wrote “The Syntax of Objects,” his first foray into the genre called creative nonfiction. His elegant book consists of short musings on the relationship we have with the objects in our lives. As a maker of objects, he wonders out loud about the way our memories and senses relate to decisions about what we make and how we go about making choices in the studio and in our living material world.
This revised edition uses the same text but the iBook edition allows for colored images and audio extracts from the audiobook edition. A perfect book to dip into over a cup of coffee or when stopping at a park bench; a wonderful gift, for a friend or for yourself.
Comments from readers:

“While reading it I find myself trasnported, then I become aware that I am smiling, nodding, wishing, crying.”
