Your ‘Burnt Books’ Offering

A mail art exposition

Print Email

Rodger Kamenetz’s Burnt Books drops next Tuesday, and in the lead-up, Nextbook Press is asking you to mail us your art on the “Burnt Books” theme (who says we don’t need the Postal Service?). Many of the books burnt in Kamenetz’s book are, of course, literally ignited (like the work of Franz Kafka). But our theme is a bit more figurative: The book may be burning (literally made of light not paper, online, eBooks etc.. ) yet it is not consumed by the flame; it is transformed, reincarnated, rejuvenated.

So, take your best shot! Send us your work, and we will exhibit it online and, possibly, physically, in New York City. Details here.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

I am foeervr indebted to you for this information.
