The goal behind The Drinkable Book is to provide affordable water filters in book form: simply rip out the page and use as a filter to have 99.9 percent pure water. The above photos is from the pagedrinkingpaper website and is credited to Brian Gartside.

There are messages on each page about water safety, printed in nontoxic ink, but it doesn't matter whether you read them or not. Each page is divided in half and perforated, designed to be ripped out. In every half page there's a thick filter infused with silver and copper nanoparticles. They give the paper its orange color and, more important, filter out the disease-causing bacteria ubiquitous in the waters of developing nations.
