This is a pretty neat project by Christien Meindertsma. She spent three years researching all the products made from a single pig. Pig 05049 to be exact. Some of those products include ammunition, medicine, photo paper, heart valves, brakes, chewing gum, porcelain, cosmetics, cigarettes, conditioner and even bio diesel. The results were put into book form with pictures of all of the items from that single pig shown at 1:1 scale. Pretty freakin’ cool.
This project also won an INDEX award.
Lots of inspiration to be found over at The Book Cover Archive. Looks pretty new with only about 800 covers at the time of this writing. It actually should be called the MODERN Book Cover Archive as there are no books before 1981. Hardly an archive but still pretty good.
