Tank Books – Cigarette boxes you can take to the pub

mofgimmers Lifestyle & Gadgets 1 Comment


As the ban on smoking in public places sweeps the United Kingdom (as from yesterday, July 1 2007), Tank is launching a series of books designed to mimic cigarette packs with the same size flip-top cartons with silver foil wrapping and sealed in cellophane.

These incredible stylish books are a triumph in design and, as a set, would make a great addition to just about any home. Of course, these will travel rather well too. These brilliant items are essential for lovers of literature and probably even more desirable to those with a keen eye for innovative (and handsome) design. In fact, these are books are so great, you could argue that they should come with a government health warning. On sale now and retailing for £6.99 and available from Waterstones, Borders, Blackwells, Foyles, Magma and Urban Outfitters. For more information, see
www.tankform.com. Read over for the titles available in this wonderful series.
