Laying Waste
by Michael H. Brown. Pantheon, 1980
Binding by Minsky, 1988
8" x 5 3/4"

Trade binding with hypodermic needle, crack caps, condom, collage (the artist's toxic lacquer thinner label), acrylic and phosphorescent paint. Photos show full light, dim light, no light.

Subtitled "The Poisoning of America by Toxic Chemicals," this book is by the journalist who exposed Love Canal. The binding adds materials which relate to how we poison ourselves. The phosphorescent image, invisible in normal light, is a glowing death's head in a river of radioactive waste.
