Waterproof Books for Bath Time Featured On Kickstarter

By Maryann Yin 

Bibliobath, a company based in The Netherlands, hopes to raise $10,140.00 on Kickstarter. The funding will go towards the organization’s mission to create waterproof books. These products will allow bibliophiles to enjoy reading in the bath. We’ve embedded a video about the project above.

Here’s more from the Kickstarter page: “After some testing we now have blank prototypes of the books with fully waterproof binding and paper. We have also tested the ink at various water temperatures and soap types. The books will be made of synthetic paper made from polypropylene, which is fully waterproof but feels like real paper at a thickness of just 0.085 mm. No trees are used in the production of the materials, which is fully recyclable (in case it is incinerated with the trash it will be completely burned without any toxic byproducts).”
