Burning books - no3

Another experimental casualty: 1956 edition of Around the World in 80 Days. It's a shame I had to burn that! I grow fond of nice things very quickly. Some nice results here. I have managed to preserve the text. Totally legible!

To be continued.

I am taking books, that no longer have the society that supports them (uh! I have got a barn full of them!) and I reduce them to an immensely fragile state - so fragile, that they may disintegrate in hands - just like the memory of the times, that they represent.
