Curious Case of the Communist Jello Box
Published by Microcosm Publishing
From the 'Cosm: "This awesome "poster zine" shows the sordid shared history between Jell-O and nuclear secrets. Wait. What? Yep, Jell-O and nuclear secrets. Packed with espionage and intrigue, this super sweet poster (featuring declassified documents!), details the not-so-well-known connections between America's favorite jiggly fruit snack and the Manhattan project, government propaganda campaigns, and executed spies (or were they?) Ethel and Julius Rosenburg. It's totally like a John Grisham novel ... only, y'know, not stupid and predictable and terribly written. There's always room for J-E-L-L-O. And nukes! And the truth! It's a little preview of our upcoming book Edible Secrets!"
