"A statement about the storage of nuclear waste in plastic. The line drawings are derived from children's textbooks, redrawn to show a disrupted nature. The toxic wastes, listed partially alphabetically, are printed on both sides of the embossed paper, each page separated by a plastic sheet. The unstable and hence inappropriate and hazardous use of plastic to contain toxic waste is emphasized by the diverse deformations of each of the plastic sheets"--Artist's statement from Vamp & Tramp website.
"The plastics used in this book are the acrylic slipcase and illusion polycarbonate and flexible vinyl from Rowland Technologies in Connecticut; the papers are Barcham Green Cambersand and Cairo from Hayle Mill in England. Computer preparation by Ellen Dorn Levitt with printing by Andrew Miller-Brown and binding executed by Audrey Holden"--Colophon.
