Architects Louise Harpman and Scott Specht have collected these humble triumphs of industrial design, in their many variations, for decades, creating the world's largest collection of coffee cup lids. In addition to life-size specimen photographs, Coffee Lids includes essays charting the history, development, and characterisation of the coffee lid; a field guide to lid features; and numerous original patent drawings. This quirky design exploration will delight anyone who takes note of the small bits of genius that surround us every day. You'll never look at your drink-through disposable hot-beverage lid the same way again.
