Banned Books Matches
This special-edition set of matchbooks features 5 celebrated yet once-banned books. Featured titles are: Slaughterhouse-Five, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Black Beauty, Fahrenheit 451, and Song of Solomon.
The set of five matchbooks is packaged in a slipcase (2" x 2-1/2"). On the back of each matchbook there is an explanation of why the book was censored, and by whom: Black Beauty by the South African government for use of the word “black” in the title; The Adventures of Tom Sawyer banned from the children’s section of the Brooklyn Public Library in 1876 because of “the questionable character” of the main character.
Made in USA. The manufacturer works with Books For Africa and donates a book for each product sold.
