Alright, before you freak out with “WHat?! How could she!!!” and “What a terrible person!!!”, some books just need to be let go. I like to get rid of my books in unique ways, and I think it makes them even more beautiful!
The first attempt of lighting the book didn’t go well. This photo shows the extent of the burning. It just wouldn’t light.
So, I poured oil on it. Real lovely, right?
But then … something awesome happened. It burned!
I must say, my smoke photos were definitely the most magical!
Stay tuned for more photos of this book. I will be posting some in the next month or so from when I put the flame out. They are pretty awesome!
What did you think? Would you be able to burn a book? I was really torn about it, but I definitely don’t regret it! Thanks for reading.
