A new book dedicated to the art of the cigarette holder has been published by Officina Libraria.

Titled; A TOKEN OF ELEGANCE: Cigarette Holders in Vogue (by Martin Barnes Lorber and Rebecca McNamara), the work displays holders from around the world.

It includes a foreword from Carolyn Hsu-Balcer, that reads:  “Over time I became less interested in smoking and more interested in cigarette holders.

 “I was attracted by the endless variety of materials, the period styles, the marriage of artistry and practicality, all played out in a small canvas that looked equally at home between the fingers as it did between the lips.”
