Free the Bunnies/ Free the Rabbits
FREE THE BUNNIES / FREE THE RODENTS
Product Description: A series of two books constructed using heavy-duty paper, bound in a folded fashion. Each cover (back and front) has been hand printed, likely using a stamp and letterpress. Each page contains a set of bars and a hand-constructed 3D rabbit. The ink-outline has been laser printed onto the fabric prior to being mounted. In conjunction with the rabbits are a series of brown labels. They contain images of popular products, which have been transferred onto the card using cellulose thinner. A brief blurb states the books focus: “It is unnecessary to test cosmetics, toiletries or household products on animals”. Both books cast a critical eye upon the world of animal testing through a shocking visual comparison.
The second book has been created using Somerset paper with the spine being covered in a brown, parcel paper. It is entitled “Free The Rodents” and contains three 3D fabric animals (rabbit, rat and guinea pig) alongside more detailed descriptions of how they have been treated.
