Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tobacco has been cultivated, cured, and smoked for centuries, and despite health risks, it is apparently a pleasure that is here to stay. This lavishly illustrated book provides an in-depth look at smoking with thorough explanations of how the crop is cultivated, cured and prepared. A rich historical background is complemented by vintage and modern advertisements which show the various stages in society's reaction to the culture of tobacco. Brilliant photographs provide a splendid panorama of the paraphernalia of smoking and of the various shapes taken by the combustibles themselves
-- Amusing sidebars include Freud's comments on cigars, celebrity smokers, and smoking in fiction, film, and fine art.
-- Information on smoking in religious ceremonies as well as as part of a hallucinatory culture
-- Covers pipes, cigars, cigarettes, snuff, and all the possible tobacco forms
