The collaboration gives a new life to carefully curated second hand books, chosen by Lucy Kumara Moore (Director of Claire de Rouen) and re-covered by hand using offcuts sourced from our previous collections as part of Ssōne's zero waste initiative.

 

Now recognized as one of the most influential books of the twentieth century, Silent Spring exposed the destruction of wildlife through the widespread use of pesticides. Despite condemnation in the press and heavy-handed attempts by the chemical industry to ban the book, Rachel Carson succeeded in creating a new public awareness of the environment which led to changes in government and inspired the ecological movement. It is thanks to this book, and the help of many environmentalists, that harmful pesticides such as DDT were banned from use in the US and countries around the world.
