Pigs, we haven’t spotted one in ages. Where have they been? Have all mud-pools dried out or what? After seeing Christien Meindertsma’s PIG 05049 we realized that we’d seen more pigs of late then we thought. Meidertsma spent three years researching products made from a single pig. Of course we see hams and leather shoes, but what’s more startling is that products like heart valves, cupcakes,liquorice, bath pearls, toothpaste and even bullets are made with pig ingredients. Because of this book the need to brush your teeth after a pork chop has completely vanished. All products are photographed to scale and the book recently won the Dutch Design Awards.
