The House of Leaves - Burning 4

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 love books and I cannot imagine burning one. There is something sick about this. I pray you have come to your sense by this year, 2012!

    drempeddler I tend to agree with you, but there are thousands and thousands of books published every year, and it's said that the United States alone consumes about 2 billion books a year. What's the difference between burning a book in your backyard and capturing some pretty flames with a camera, and sending it off to a landfill?
