About the Author

With two writers for parents, it was inevitable that London-based writer Tom Wainwright would take up a career in publishing. Tom began his career working on books at Miller's, before moving to Phaidon to work on various architecture and design titles. It was there that he developed a passion for design. Pet-tecture: Design for Pets combines two of his passions - design and animals of all kinds.
