Artwork Description

Acrylic on paper

Signed on the back.

Book lovers and thinking people everywhere dread the scenario brought so very vividly to life in this stunning poster: A blazing pile of books! Why would anyone hang such a subject on their wall? Because a book-burning is a most absurd suggestion, of course. What a conversation starter this poster will be for you and your dinner guests.

Book Burning II was preceded by another, smaller poster on the same subject, which remains in the possession of Bonchustown. The original concept was so appealing it just had to be re-visited on a larger scale.

With intense reds, whites and yellows one can almost feel the heat and smell the acrid smoke as the bonfire reaches 451 degrees. Act now: get your beloved books out and begin memorising them! And of course be the lucky person to own Book Burning II
