Kesophane, the wrapping
material, is a lot like a banana skin.
It wraps a product in…keeps troubles out!
But the comparison stops there. Because a banana
skin is not transparent, not printable, not protective
And it can be pretty dangerous when left around.
Oh yes, Kesophane and the old banana skin are
Similar in one big way.
They’re both easy to peel off.
Yet you can always tell when they’re tampered with!

Wraps your product in…
Keeps your troubles out!
Manufactured by
Kesoram Rayon

That’s it. You just make the life choice.” Richard looked up and inhaled needfully. He gazed at his cigarette. He didn’t really want to smoke it. He wanted to eat it. Almost the only thing that he still liked about Gwyn was that he still smoked…Paradoxically, he no longer wanted to give up smoking: what he wanted to do was take up smoking.
