Sculptor Chris Bathgate writes, "I have just self-published my first book of sculptures that features all of my machined metal sculptures from 2007-2011 as well as technical drawings and process images."
We've written about Chris's work before. He produces some of the most beautiful machined-metal pieces I've seen, somehow stark and embellished at the same time. I called them "beautiful, abstract machined forms with edges that look like they'd cut and curves that are cold and stern. They're like the gleaming brass sex-organs of some exotic, alien life form." The book looks like some kind of wonderful (see the excerpts after the jump). Chris Bathgate Metal Work (Thanks, Chris!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
