WINTER CYCLING by Arthur Cherry

VIDEO

I mounted the GoPro Hero 4 to the bike on a test ride around Kansas City. The ride started and ended in Brookside and rode through the Country Club Plaza, Midtown, Crossroads, Downtown, and the River Market. This is how it turned out.

FAMINE AFFLUENCE & MORALITY by Arthur Cherry

BOOK    DESIGN

Famine, Affluence, and Morality
by Peter Singer / Foreword by Bill & Melinda Gates
Available at your local bookstore or on Amazon.

Peter Singer's "Famine, Affluence and Morality," first published in 1972, rapidly became one of the most widely discussed essays in applied ethics, and is one of the reasons why Singer has been described as the world's most influential living philosopher. Professors have used Singer's example of the child drowning in a pond who you could easily rescue, to challenge their students to rethink their attitudes to people in extreme poverty. Exposure to Singer's arguments has led many of those students to change their lives, in one case, even to the point of donating a kidney to a stranger.

As Bill and Melinda Gates point out in their Foreword, Singer's classic essay is as relevant today as it ever was. It is published here together with two of Singer's more popular writings on our obligations to those in poverty, and a new introduction by Singer that brings the reader up to date with his current thinking. 

The design is a conceptual and contemplative take on the shallow pond that the child is drowning in. 

The cover is printed on an uncoated Oatmeal colored Rainbow paper to give it a humble, toothy feel. 

The printed cover is below:


If I am walking past a shallow pond and see a child drowning in it, I ought to wade in and pull the child out. This will mean getting my clothes muddy, but this is insignificant, while the death of the child would presumably be
a very bad thing.
— Peter Singer, Author
