Parts and Places: The Structures of Spatial Representation

Parts and Places: The Structures of Spatial Representation

MIT Press Design Department, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1999

Description

This book discusses fundamental issues in the philosophy of spatial representation, including an analysis of the interplay between mereology (the study of part/whole relations), topology (the study of spatial continuity and compactness) and the theory of spatial location proper.

It was a lot of fun creating this cover image of hand-cut paper typography. The low budget couldn’t afford a professional photograph, but thanks to PhotoShop my own amateur shoot was sufficient after some retouching.
