Marvel at the design of machines in which no one has any interest, machines that spend their lives secluded in the dark corners of closets. They are brought into the daylight only now and then to “snip-snip,” finish a masterpiece: Splicers. They all serve the same purpose but look quite different from one another: Splicers made from wood, plastic or metal. An illustrated book about the design of splicers. Intruiging photos of quirky hot splicers from America, Bakelite viewers with cutting tools, dry, wet, plane and automated splicers.

More than 120 large images of devices: small design gems. Jürgen Lossau: CUT, 220 x 220 mm, illustrated book with 128 pages, 150 colour photos, ISBN 3-9807235-2-6.
