From the Projects Library #1

Lifesaving: Rescue and Water Safety,
© 1974
I don't remember where or when I acquired this book, it was probably at a garage sale. I think the illustrations are a brilliantly effective use of two color printing. There is something disturbing in the matter-of-fact depiction of terrifying situations. More disturbing is that when taken out of context, these images can start to feel like depictions of strange acts of sexual violence.
