The Fumifugium Book.

The inspiration and name for the project comes from this book. It was the first book on the problem of air pollution written in 1661 by John Evelyn.

I loved the title and on reading it discovered that one of his solutions was to plant more trees. It’s amazing to think that this has not changed in over 300 years!

The Fumifugium can be read in full, for free, through this ‘OPEN LIBRARY’ link.
