Books come from trees. Now trees can come from books.
In an effort to promote environmentally friendly literature, an Argentinean publisher, Pequeño Editor, has created a children’s book that can be planted after reading and will grow into a tree. Using eco-friendly ink and acid-free paper that has been infused with seeds from the Jacaranda tree, the book will decompose in fertile soil, leaving nothing but the seeds to grow into a tree.
The book created by Pequeño Editor is for children between the ages of eight and twelve. It closes the loop in the tree-become-book scenario, bringing it full circle to tree-becomes-book, which becomes a tree again.
