Drinkable Book combines sanitation manual and water filters #ArtTuesday

Pasted Image 5 13 14 12 19 PM

Drinkable Book combines sanitation manual and water filters, from Dezeen.com:

Launched by communications group DDB New York for charity WaterisLife, the Drinkable Book is a sanitation manual with pages that double as water filters. It was created by researchers from American institutions Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Virginia.

The book’s pages contain unique technology, invented by chemist Dr Theresa Dankovich, which can help decrease the bacteria count of contaminated drinking water by more than 99.9 percent.

New-York-based typographer Brian Gartside was brought on board to help shape the book’s aesthetic.

“At the moment, this is by far the most exciting project I’m working on,” he told Dezeen. “The process of designing the book itself was unlike anything I’ve done before, simply because of all the variables that were beyond our control.”

Historically, WaterisLife faced serious challenges when it came to providing both clean water and useful information about sanitation to communities in need, but The Drinkable Book appears to tackle both issues simultaneously.

Each page gives 60 days of safe drinking water, while an entire book can provide up to four year’s worth.

A single page can be broken into two 4.5 by 4.5-inch filters; the top one is printed with hygiene information in English, while the bottom is translated into the relevant local language. Up to now, they have printed a run of books destined for Kenya, which are written in English and Swahili.

“The end goal would be to produce books/filters for each of the 33 countries that WaterisLife works in, but we had to start somewhere,” Gartside said.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
