The favorite book of Anna Piotrowska
Anna Piotrowska was our Scholar in Residence in August 2017. While working in the Iron Library she consulted several books on a daily basis that all belonged to the same series – "History of Mechanism and Machine Science". She realized that the most convincing thing about these books was how smoothly they were narrated, and how easily they familiarized the readers with impressively wide perspectives, yet without losing important details.
