Cigarette books

As one habit dies hard, another takes hold.
The ban on smoking in public places came into operation in the UK on July 1, 2007. Tank is launching a series of books designed to mimic cigarette packs –
the same size, packaged in flip-top cartons with silver foil wrapping and sealed in cellophane. TankBooks pay homage to this monumentally successful piece of packaging design by employing it in the service of great literature. Cigarette packs are iconic objects, familiar, tried and tested, and over time TankBooks will become iconic objects in their own right
Joseph Conrad "Heart of Darkness"
Ernest Hemingway “The Undefeated” and
“The Snows of Kilimanjaro”,
Franz Kafka “The Metamorphosis” and
“In the Penal Colony”
Rudyard Kipling “The Man who would be King”,
“The Phantom ’Rickshaw” and
“Black Jack”
Robert Louis Stevenson "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde"
