Summary This book is a selection of essays covering aspects of the history, and contemporary understanding of the fields of art and design and their inter-percolation.Making things has always involved skill and thought. Thought is given to their creation so they are fit for purpose. Where the purpose is aesthetic or intellectual pleasure, the resulting object is often called art. There is, however, often a hierarchy placing "art" somewhere apart from "design." But isn't some art designed? These essays investigate aspects of this dichotomy - from both sides of the supposed divide to discuss the ground.
