Instruction Manual for the End of the World

Instruction Manual for the End (of the world) ©1990, 2-7/8 x 2-7/8 x 3/4 inches closed. Copper, plastic dinosaur, fabricated. There are three end-of-the-world scenarios in this book.  The photos were taken on film before I had a chance to see them. The book went off to a show in L.A. and sold so I couldn't get better photos. That was a newbie mistake for sure. In 2006 I made another dinosaur book, 7 Extinction Events. SOLD.

On pages 2 and 3 there is a comet crashing into the earth. The pages are made of copper and were etched in nitric acid. The legs and the back body were attached with small nuts and bolts.
