Get hooked on these books


cigarette-booksBooks in cigarette packs – who would of thought? The idea comes from Tank Magazine who says, “Tank Books pay homage to this monumentally successful piece of packaging design by employing it in the service of great literature…Tank Books are for people on the move, lovers of literature and connoisseurs of design. Try one and you’ll be hooked.” Apparently the whole book fits into the “cigarette pack” and it’s the full version of the book.

Titles include, Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, The Undefeated and The Snows of Kilimanjaro by Ernest Hemingway, The Metamorphosis and In the Penal Colony by Franz Kafka, The Man who would be King, Black Jack and The Phantom Rickshaw by Rudyard Kipling, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson and The Death of Ivan Ilych and Father Sergius by Leo Tolstoy.

And really, it’s much healthier to read these books than smoke them.
