Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Rubber is fun. Rubber is useful. Rubber has fetishistic appeal. Bouncy, stretchy, naughty, squeaky, biodegradeable and renewable, rubber has not only been used for a multitude of everyday objects - tyres, wires, handles of pliers - but has also paved the way for a multitude of advances in design, technology and lifestyle. This versatile material grips the road - and the imagination. Packed with specially taken photographs of rubber objects and graphic reminders of its appeal in magazines and ads, this lighthearted look at rubber shows us rubber toys; its domestic uses; its capacity to mimic other forms and substances; its many applications in fashion; computer keyboards, mousepads, wrist supports and keyboard covers; and - as a climax - the steamy, salacious, seductive (and deliciously sleazy) erotic world of rubber.
