Product Description

Nylon-6 is the name of a polyamide polymer synthesized from ε-caprolactam in Germany. Based on questions about how technological change can be represented and how it affects social interaction on a daily basis, the authors explore the topic of nylon-6 in their first issue of a continuing zine series. The issue “Nylon -6” specifically explores the historical connection between ‘workwear’, technology, economic growth, and economic competition during the Cold War era, and provides a segue to a present where the importance of technology, economics, and sustainability are once again being discussed.
