Miniature Books: Flip Top Cigarette Packages

Gotta love this series of Minitature Books. Tank Books has produced these mini-books in iconic form: Flip Top Cigarette Packs.

This series of books is designed to mimic cigarette packs – the same size, packaged in flip-top cartons with silver foil wrapping and sealed in cellophane. Each book is complete and unabridged with a type size that’s easy to read.

Complete set comes in a tin which means I'm ordering them. Wish they were mysteries, though. Couldn't you just see a series with books by Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and the lot?

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

How cool are these?! I must confess to having a passion for little books. I have a[n appropriately] small collection of the Big Little mystery books.
