David Macaulay: Body Building: An Illustrated Lecture

Beginning with the cell, the MacArthur Award-winning artist and author of T he Way Things Work takes us on a stunning visual journey through the major systems of the body.

After receiving a bachelor's degree in architecture from RISD, David Macaulay vowed never to practice. Instead, he worked as an interior designer, a junior high school teacher, a teacher at RISD, and experimented with creating books. He published his first book, Cathedral, in 1973. City, Castle, Pyramid, Mill, Underground, Unbuilding, and Mosque followed, all of which have provided the explanations of the how and the why in a way that is both accessible and entertaining. Macaulay is perhaps best known for the award-winning international bestseller The Way Things Work, updated in 1998 and renamed The New Way Things Work. Using a humorous woolly mammoth to illustrate principles, Macaulay offers readers of all ages explanations for complexities of today's technology. He uses this same humorous approach to explain complicated systems in The Way We Work, which tackles the most intricate machine of all: the human body. His many awards include the Caldecott Medal and Honor Awards, the Boston Globe–Horn Book Award, the Christopher Award, and the Washington Post–Children's Book Guild Nonfiction Award. In 2006 he was awarded a MacArthur "genius" award.
