Brazil Gives Out Books That Double as Subway Tickets, Promoting Literacy & Mass Transit at Once | Open Culture

Brazil Gives Out Books That Double as Subway Tickets, Promoting Literacy & Mass Transit at Once | Open Culture | Litteris | Scoop.it

One of the things I miss about living in a city with a subway system is the myriad thoughtful design elements that go into managing a perpetual flow of tourists and commuters. New York’s subway map presents us with an iconic tangle of interlocking tributaries resembling diagrams of a circulatory system. The NYC system’s ingeniously simple graphic presentation of lettered and numbered trains, encircled in their corresponding colors, can be read by most anyone with a rudimentary grasp on the English alphabet—from a new language learner to a small child. The Washington, DC subway system, though a much more prosaic affair overall, whisks riders through impressively cavernous, catacomb-like stations, with brutalist tile and concrete honeycombs that seem to go on forever. The squiggly lines of its color-coded map likewise promise ease of use and legibility.

 

And then there are the hours of reading time granted by a subway commute, a leisure I’ve relinquished now that I rely on car and bike. So you can imagine my envious delight in learning about Brazil’s Ticket Books, which are exactly what they sound like—books that work as subway tickets, designed with the minimalist care that major transit systems do so well. And what’s more, they’re free: “To celebrate World Book Day last April 23rd,” writes “future-forward online resource” PSFK, “[Brazillian publisher] L&PM gave away 10,000 books for free at subway stations across São Paulo. Each book came with ten free trips.” Riders could then recharge them and use the books again or pass them on to others to encourage more reading, an important public service given that Brazilians only read two books per year on average.

How the Internet changed the way we read

Robert Bolick's curator insight, January 10, 6:53 PM

Having finished reading four books, binging on TV serials and movies and keeping up with email and other online over the holiday period 10 days, I know that the Internet has changed the way we read. But exactly how?  


Those four books were print. Another two on the go are digital. The movies were downloaded or streamed, and the TV serials were streamed.  I read and send almost no mail in print. Our filing cabinet at home is gone, reduced to three cardboard expandable files.


Jackson Bliss notes some of the types of additional reading that the Internet has brought us - including commentary like this. He questions whether there is much difference of quality between the Internet types and the traditional media types. But beyond the assertions, he doesn't probe closely or extensively the substantive nature of the changes (if there are any, which he calls into doubt). Worth a read though.
