Subject:user manual exhibit in NYC From:Heather Lum <lum -at- MED -dot- PITT -dot- EDU> Date:Fri, 18 Mar 1994 15:44:51 -0500
The March 7 '94 US News & World Report says the Fashion Institute of Technology
in Manhattan opened a user manual exhibition this month. The show includes
about 800 technical manuals and pieces of how-to literature from around the
world, created throughout this century.
My question: has anyone been to see the exhibit? If so, is it worth making a
six-hour car trip?
For the curious, the US News article is titled "The How-To-Do-It Show" and
describes intriguing highlights like a 600-VOLUME guide to the Fokker 100
series airplane, and a Soviet manual that explains how to dust nuclear fallout
off your cow after a nuclear attack.
