The accompanying introductory essay also traces the fascinating history of plastics and assesses their crucial and influential role in industrial design, while the extensive glossary of materials and processes will help sort out your Jaxonite and Xylonite from your Polyethylene and ABS.Plastic Dreams is an essential guide to material culture and a must-have publication for all lovers of plastic and design aficionados.
