101 Unuseless Japanese Inventions

Author: KENJI KAWAKAMI

Publisher: W. W. NORTON


This hilarious book is full of products meant to enhance our lives. Though they are never manufactured, high-quality prototypes are made to prove that the ideas ultimately aren’t worth introducing to the World. This is Chindogu—the art of the Unuseless product. The design of this cover is a nod to Japanese product graphics, aided by the Japanese version of English in the title (i.e.—“Unuseless” instead of “Useful”).
