The Smoking Book is an invitation to 17 artists, curators and cultural workers to talk about smoking as an act of pleasure and resistance and a multi-layered investigation about the political and economic conditions that govern our smoking habits today.

In this intimate and personal collection, through imagined futures, poetry, confessions and imagery, the pieces tell of addiction, travel, illness, death, dreams, monogamy and friendships.
