Guy Debord published his first book with a sandpaper cover so that the books next to it would be destroyed!
Guy Ernest Debord was a French Marxist theorist and a passive aggressive book murderer. His first published work was an artist’s book made in collaboration with Danish artist Asger Jorn. This book is most famous for it's cover, a dust jacket made of heavy-grade sandpaper.
The two authors wanted to book’s cover to be made from an unconventional material that would tarnish the coverings of the books next to it when it was pulled from a book shelf. They contemplated sticky asphalt and glass wool before settling on sand paper.
Because nothing sticks it to the bourgeoisie more than ruining the hard work of fellow underemployed and underappreciated authors.
