PLASTIC FANTASTIC
I've been meaning to post about this for a long time. One afternoon I was scanning a shelf of books in my home and came across this beauty entitled, simply, 'RUBBER.' Stolen from our local library some twenty two years ago, (Lord knows who needed it back then?) it's full of the most amazing pictures of rubber being formed and moulded into useful appliances and accessories, like these rubber gloves. I got all tingly over this picture - I think I'd quite like to lay on this field of rubber hands. This synthespian, Sir Henry Wickham, was the man who discovered the invaluable properties of the rubber plant. He had the most incredible moustache. Sexy Devil.Nice work all round.
