'By their works ye shall know them'

Machu Picchu, detail - Edward Ranney, 2001

When I see Edward Ranney's photos of Inka stonemasonry, I am reminded why I wanted to be an archaeologist and the incomparable feelings of setting eyes and hands on these stones.

Saywite Stone, model of the Inka world - Edward Ranney, 2001

If I could add books to the Design Engaged reading list, I would have to include The Stone and the Thread: Andean Roots of Abstract Art, for its unique contribution to questions of materiality, design, space and culture.
