Wood Veneers And Laminated Plastics: Past Present And Future by James Duggan

The original publication was designed and written to draw comparisons between the use of wood veneer and laminated plastics in the manufacture of domestic furniture.

Finally, it looks at the wider implications and draws conclusions from their continued use at an ever increasing rate in a worldwide consumer culture.
