on the moon - in which man went to the moon and left some stuff behind

As you know, I am bothered by litter.

Doing some research on the topic I discovered that there is quite a lot of litter (trash) in space, and also on the surface of the moon.

I decided to make a digital book on the topic, using Adobe Publish Online.

This is currently a virtual book; it only exists digitally. Given that it is about litter, it felt appropriate to make a zero impact book.

The images are recycled from NASA. They are available to use freely, with no copyright restrictions at Flickr Commons.

The pages are shown below, but you will get a much richer, page turning experience if you click on this link.

  1. Thank you for highlighting this information; I am appalled, but not surprised. I really like your book, its design and that it is digital - powerful message. I've written a post about it on my blog in order to spread the word a wee bit further.

  2. Thank you for the share, Olga. I don't think we should stop making physical work; it is part of a creative need. But for this project I felt digital was the right way to go. I still prefer a paper book that can be held in the hand, and the turning of the pages makes the read more meaningful. There will always be a dilemma about waste, but my main desire is to keep a discussion going, and you have contributed to that!

    thank you
