More crazy cool book covers!
Cigarette Book Covers
Do you notice that sometimes when you read classical literature, all the characters do between breaks in the conversation is smoke? Must be hard for reformed smokers, feeling the pull of the literary giants, glamorizing a habit we know condone. However, there is now a smoke free way to get your kick. Tank Magazine, located in London, England, has created super-cool book covers at Tank Books for some seriously super-cool authors. These book covers are meant to mimic cigarette cases and are being dubbed the most successful book packaging design in years. Check out the list below for titles available in these cigarette boxes. You can see they were aptly chosen, because we can all envision them puffing away while they write page after page.
* Where to find them in Canada: Tank Magazine is British and therefore the price is in pounds. I sent the company an email to find out what costs would be to order these books and this is the reply I received.
“Each six pack cigarette tin cost (which contains all six titles) is priced at £39.99 plus postage and packing costs £7.20. In total £47.19. Each individual pack coats £6.99 each and postage is priced according to how many are sent!”
