The Art of the Patent

"This book is like eye candy for anyone technical."
Adam Thomas, VP Operations,

Most patents are what you would expect from a government document: downright boring. Yet the drawings on some are absolutely amazing, with beautiful line-art illustrations that show in stunning detail the inner workings of everything from farming machines to airplanes to rockets. Join us on a tour of some of the best patent drawings ever created, as well as a glimpse of some of our most historically significant patents, spanning over 200 years of patent art.

Since patent draftsman are not listed on patent documents, the artwork they create remains anonymous. This book brings out the best of those. With some interesting discussion on tools the draftsman use, and some of the more important patent drafting rules issued by the US Patent & Trademark Office, this book will be appreciated by anyone interested in mechanical drawings, line-art illustrations, and fascinating milestones in patent history.
