Bio Hazard symbol : : Hand folded into the pages of a book

There is only 1 item left in stock.


Instantly recognisable from zombie and disaster movies....and seen day to day in hospitals, chemists, laboratories, vets - anywhere, really, that there are areas or vessels which contain biological contaminated materials (blood, needles, tissues etc)

Another symbol which fascinates me. it was created in 1966, with the intention of being a completely unique memorable yet [at that point] meaningless symbol, the criteria for its design was:

1 Striking in form in order to draw immediate attention;
2 Unique and unambiguous, in order not to be confused with symbols used for other purposes
3 Quickly recognizable and easily recalled
4 Easily stencilled
5 Symmetrical, in order to appear identical from all angles of approach
6 Acceptable to groups of varying ethnic backgrounds.

Created by carefully hand folding the pages of a preowned or vintage book. 
Photos shown are of past pieces, most of which have gone to their new forever homes. I create this art within the pages of pre-owned & vintage books, therefore each item is unique and exact colours and final appearances naturally vary from book to book.
