Tyvek Big Book for Peace Completed

In a previous post on this Tyvek Innovative Uses blog, the project Big Book: Pages for Peace was described, in which the Bookmakers and Dreamers Club, students from Groton-Dunstable Regional School District in Massachusetts recently completed making the biggest book in the world on the topic peace. They made the Big Book entirely of DuPont™ Tyvek®.

DuPont donated the Tyvek material for the project - Tyvek Graphics style 8740D. Material Concepts did the converting of the huge Tyvek master roll into 15 smaller rolls and donated the cost of the shipping to the project group.

According to DuPont's press release and information on the Big Book: Pages for Peace website, the book is now completed! As the press release describes, the book contains "over 1,100 pages with 3,500 pieces of artwork, letters, quotes and messages of peace from such notable contributors as Nelson Mandela, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Maya Angelou, measures 12 feet tall by 10 feet wide – 20 feet when open."

If you are thinking of a project - big or small - in which Tyvek would be a good material to use, contact Material Concepts via phone: 215-338-6515 or 1-800-372-3366 to buy some Tyvek material.
