About this piece:

During the course of my research, I discovered all sorts of nasty information about what’s in our food, so I designed this jaunty little pop-up book with a bouncy little rhyme to point out some of the toxins we are consuming. What’s for Dinner? (a larger quilted fabric pop-up book) is a companion piece to this one.
