Cigarette Book Packaging

London compnay, Tank Books, has really done a bang up job, not just with the selection of books, but also in their design to mimic the iconic flip-top cigarette package.

The flip-top cigarette pack is one of the most successful pieces of packaging design in history. TankBooks pay homage to this iconic form by employing it in the service of great literature. We have launched 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.

The titles are by authors of great stature – classic stories presented in classic packaging; objects desirable for both their literary merit and their unique design.

Each story is complete and unabridged – with a type size that’s easy to read. Individual books are great for throwing into a pocket or handbag – an instantly familiar object to carry with you. The complete set comes in a stunning tin – perfect as a really original gift.

You can purchase each book individually, or you can buy the entire carton, if you will.

    comepletely wasteful. Books don't need any packaging, let alone cellophane outside and foil inside.
