Every artist should read this book. Keep yourself safe, so you can keep on making your art!
I think this part of art materials education has been neglected for too long and it's about time we start taking it seriously.
The current book covers different art fields and the health hazards/materials related to these. I found it rather helpful to find out about the hazardous materials that are used in scuplting, ceramic art, woodworking, etc. As not everybody is a chemist, it's a relief to have all this knowledge in a nutshell, ie. the chapters covering each art field are fairly short and it's easy to grasp the main idea. I warmly recommend it to the first year art students, as well as to hobby painters, etc. People should think about the fact that the materials that were banned in industry some umpteen years ago, but are still in common use by artists, should be taken seriously.
