Art Library Rare Books Collection N 7433.4 .M313 A46 1984 box 3.1

Produced at a time of MAD (mutual assured destruction), IN CASE OF EMERGENCY: combines text from a 1954 US government booklet with images drawn from the artist’s youth in duck-and-cover America. A veritable last entertainment for ground zero. When folded, the book wrapper represents a nuclear hazard warning. Inside the pages unfold in a dizzying confusion as images of planes and bombs are revealed.
