A book cover inspired by the podcast episode “Unleaded” from the series “America Dissected,” hosted by Abdul El-Sayed. The podcast focuses on the Flint Water Crisis, where residents were exposed to leadcontaminated water.
The cover platforms the residents of Flint, depicting their interactions with clean and contaminated water. It does so through the use of minimal line drawings inspired by images from news stories capturing their experience through the crisis. The use of blue and orange colors differentiates clean water from contaminated water.
