    I love those. And get major points for being accessible.
    The limited edition Fahrenheit 451; with the asbestos cover is a holy grail tho. Only 200 were made.

    I showed my wife the 1984 cover a while ago. She told me ‘There’s a fine line between clever and stupid. That is stupid’. 

    Personally, I have a sneaking suspicion that ‘Books v. Cigarettes’ costs more than three shillings and sixpence.
