Writers and artists offer new perspectives on water, with writings and projects that touch on subjects ranging from new water infrastructures to the bliss of bathing.

Reviews

From molecule to global resource, water is examined from every angle...Water offers a flood of images that leaves a nostalgic residue for a resource we so often take for granted. There's also the haunting effect of the book itself—something archival that makes us feel we hold a precious remnant in our hands.

Los Angeles Times

Visually eclectic and artistically driven...This book is like having an art gallery in your hands.
