Books That Make You Reconsider an Element Like Calcium

Even as so many things connect us in this world and in nature, often we fail to see the most fundamental, and important, elements. Literally.

Not Korynn Newville. She kicks off her new series “Indiscernible Elements” with a unique take on the element calcium, in her book, Indiscernible Elements: Calcium. Yes, that well-known health benefit touted in so many a milk or orange juice commercial. But, as Korynn shows, it’s so much more.

An architectural designer, artist and activist, she describes how calcium is in us, and all around us. Through illustration, poetry and dialogue, Korynn explores in her book the path a molecule of calcium can take through various stages of life and death.

Korynn’s passion for the environment was the impetus that led to her writing and her eco-activism. She seeks to deliver a message of hope, connection, and adaptation to share with the world.
