O Book of mine

I've previously made mention my beliefs that cigarettes are Satan's handmaiden.

However i can't deny that this is an ingenisouly cute idea. Tank Books have taken the flip-top cigarette pack and re-realease classics such as Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, Ernest Hemingway’s The Undefeated and The Snows of Kilimanjaro, Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis and Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Indie German Publishing house - Automatenverlag - has taken the idea one step further and have started dispensing books, graphic novels, children's cookbook, travel guides and collections of poetry in vintage cigarette machines in and around Hamburg.

At only 4 euros a pop - the books are cheaper than a pack of cigarettes and instead of shrinking your brain you're pumping it up, ooooo feel the literary burn.
