Quandary Resolution 2516
cyanotype, ebony, ancillary, prolix
Cosmetics tycoon Abby Williams, who was perfectly aware that she had a reputation for non-stop talking, named her new line of lip gloss PROLIX and reveled in the success particularly of the super-black Goth lip gloss "Ebony Metal", using some of the profits to build a small annex to the factory to house her photography collection (calotypes and cyanotypes with a few daguerrotypes for contrast) and to serve as a processing lab for her own photographs, especially since she discovered an unexpected ancillary use for the titanium dioxide ordered by the factory for use in all the pale lip glosses (e.g., "Ghost Smile"): namely, as a necessary part of the Polacolor SX-70 photographic process.
