Joost Swarte on reading


(Reading will kill you)

Reading is dangerous ! Dutch cartoonist and designer Joost Swarte wants to warn all of you of the dangers of books and reading in general. For that purpose, he has produced a handy set of post cards, each with an easy to understand message for particular risk groups and possible victims.

Carefully read these examples and get yourself a paper copy of the complete set. They are not only worth it – they might actually save your life !

(Your writer or bookseller can help you to stop reading)


(Books contain ideas, insults, opinions and enticements)
