Until Death Do Us Apart - Thomas Sauvin
Until Death Do Us Part focuses on the unexpected role cigarettes play in Chinese weddings. As a token of appreciation, it is customary for the bride to light a cigarette for each and every man invited. The bride and the groom are then invited to play some cigarette-smoking games of unprecedented ingenuousness. This publication pays homage to a tradition in which love and death walk hand in hand.
