KUA ENERGY CONSERVATION GUIDE
KUA Energy Conservation Guide --
Chris Gent, Kissimmee Utility Authority, Kissimmee, FL ...
"A remarkable and exceptionally well done booklet which explains that electric bills don't always go up for the reason you might think. The striking design employs a retro style notebook format, complete with typewriter-like text. The line illustrations are clear and self-explanatory, while the handwritten notes, arrows and underlines (in red) stand out against the uncoated tan, beige and creme colored paper stock. All of this design frames the well written, nicely chunked copy and provides bulleted advice -- from your home's windows to the bathtub -- on lowering energy costs. It's genuinely helpful."
