Focusing on the building rather than the content, this book is an alternative guidebook to the site. It uses soundbite captions and photographs from the NMEC archive. In the middle, a transparent section of layered pages shows the engineering and architectural principles of the building. The circular pages and the futuristic packaging are designed by North to evoke the building itself.

Edited in-house by the NMEC, published by Booth-Clibborn Editions on 7 February, priced £9.99
