Newspaper printed on plastic...
Item # 642860
October 12, 1967
PLASTTRADING PALETTE, The Netherlands, October 12, 1967 This is a very curious & perhaps experimental or promotional newspaper printed entirely on plastic. It was done by a plastics firm in The Netherlands to show how versatile plastic could be--it could even be used for printing newspapers. The "newspaper" appears to be an in-house publication, likely distributed to employees of Plasttrading, Ltd. If meant to extol the versatility of plastic, this effort never caught on beyond its use as an in-house publication.
The print is quite clear, including the many photos within. And no wear, cracking, fragility, or browning! There is some rubbing to the front page and a bit to the back page with the insides pages in great condition. Some rubbing to the masthead date but the year is clearly inked on each of the inside pages.
