The House of Leaves - Burning 1

    Newer Older

    My cousin wanted to destroy this book, The House of Leaves, for various personal reasons (I promise you, both of us love books and don't make a habit of burning them!). So instead of just throwing it in the trash, we burned it. My, what a show! The flames and curling pages were really beautiful and I tried to capture it on film.

      I like bonfires but only with unwanted paper etc. With regard to Ben Hope picture; use it with my blessing.

      Wow, I'm flattered, deniseea! I'm always using Flickr pictures for my blog (, so it's nice to know that I can return the favor to someone :)

      I'm curious as to why your cousin felt the need to destroy this book... especially since in one of the stories Will Navidson has to burn a book for light and warmth, called "House of Leaves"... creepy!

      She was actually burning it for a friend of hers who said it was giving her nightmares and perhaps making strange things happen in her house. It is creepy.....
