Yes, that really is a photo of a dead rat on the cover, just above the Marlboro branding. The line at the rat's feet says "Toxic Product." The spine says "Smoking kills." And on the back we get:
"When you smoke, you're looking for a slow and painful death.
"Tobacco contains more than 4000 substances that seriously damage the body."
And..."Contains cyanide, a mortal poison used in rat killer."
But still they smoke.
This little hand-made mini journal with longstitch binding has 12 signatures of 14 pages each. The signatures alternate in cream and tan bond paper. The stitching is done with tan linen thread. After cutting the box open, I lined it with cream colored paper. Because of the glue, it needs to go under weights for a day or so to stay completely flat. It's a nice fat little journal and a good size for a purse or pocket.
