Cigarette box books...

Tankbooks, "tales to take your breath away" these are classic novels packaged in cigarrette boxes. These are really cool. Cigarette packets are iconic and i love anything that twists the tradional use of something is good in my book. Practically i dont know how well these will work, as a cigarette box is pretty small for a novel. This seems to be one of those conceptial "cool" bits of design with no real practical widescale use, but need to exist to keep the design world fresh. The covers lend themselves quite well to the scale though, and anyone seeing them would unlikely guess it contained a book until close inspection.
