Book burning has never seemed so benign


A Croatian graphic design firm has taken the phrase “cooking the books” to a whole new level. It prepared an annual report for Podravka, the largest food company in southeast Europe, so that the contents could only be read–stats, recipes, pictures, and all–once the book has been baked in an oven for 25 minutes, at 100 degrees Celsius. Until then, all the reader has are blank pages.
