Fire proof book arrives on exchange

Wednesday, 14 April, 2010 by Book Library Team

Thanks to our exchange partners at the Belvedere gallery in Vienna, we are preparing to accession an exhibition catalogue with a very special feature – a flame-retardant, fully recyclable textile cover! The catalogue celebrates the work of a group of artists headed by Wiener Musterzimmer, and is clothed in “Returnity”, the world’s first fabric to be made with particularly durable and environmentally friendly properties.

Search our library catalogue by keyword Musterzimmer.
Please note this is a special collections (CABS) item.
