🚨👽 Out Now!!! Trevor Paglen's new book "From the Archives of Peter Merlin, Aviation Archaeologist"! The book features new photographs and text by Paglen centered on former NASA archivist Peter Merlin's vast collection of flight wreckage, dossiers, and memorabilia from military bases such as Area 51 and the Edwards Air Force Base. Paglen's photographs of these symbol-laden challenge coins, patches, and other objects build on his long-standing interest in the culture of secrecy while providing a fragmentary peek into decades of elusive military missions. The 150-page book is produced in full color and retails for $20
