Hypodermic needle collage

A little oddity from a little 1972 Collage book (Search Press). It's a collage made from hypodermic needles.

"This charming and interesting design was made from the throw away products of the medical profession. It is included for general interest only, as few of us other than doctors, nurses, etc, would have access to such materials." (for "etc" read "junkies and smack addicts")

"It is, however, a classical illustration of the art of collage by showing how much improbable materials can create a most artistic effect. It cannot be impressed too much upon the reader that almost any waste product can be converted into interesting and exciting patterns."

  1. I guess this would be a fun thing for diabetics and people on injectable anticoagulants to do in their spare time. You know, if they were insane.
