Synopsis

Ingenious and amusing illustrated inventions from the brilliant mind of Dominic Wilcox, "I love this book. Laugh-out-loud funny. I want a salty thumb lolly now!" (Harry Hill). As we go about our day-to-day business, we see the same stuff every day. The bath, the fridge, the lamp post, the bicycle, the tree...so far, so humdrum. But not if you are Dominic Wilcox. Dominic sees things a little differently. For him, inside each of these everyday things are hundreds of surprising ideas waiting to be discovered. The Portable Bottom Seat, the Sick Bag Beard, Wrist Nets for the Butterfingered - Dominic's unexpected inventions, conflations and modifications promise to make your life that little bit easier, or at least more amusing. Normal will never seem quite so normal again.

British artist, designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox lived a perfectly normal life in the north east of England until the age of 19. Since then he has read the dictionary, twice, battled against a 3D printer at the V&A Museum and shown his odd, surprising and thought-provoking designs at galleries around the world. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in London he set about creating things that made him feel happy, excited and intrigued. His innovative work has become known internationally for its playful yet understated style, regularly solving problems people hadn't previously realised they had. Notable works include: 'No Place Like Home' GPS shoes that guide the wearer to their desired destination, and miniature sculptures balanced on the moving hands of watches.
