"Dirty and Clean" Books

Artist Martin Konrad has designed a series of works to highlight the issue of censorship and banning.

From his web site:
dirty books - 2006

conceptual series of books. reminder of ongoing censorship and restrictions on intellectual freedom.

cover with information on censorship of specific book. first amendment of bill of rights to US constitution as background. physical references to past and ongoing book treatments: burning, tearing apart, locking away, danger of reading, hiding.

Thanks to Mental Floss for bringing this to my attention.
