Icelandic Publisher Only Prints on Full Moon, Burns Unsold Copies: Critical Linking, June 5, 2017

Sponsored by We Are Never Meeting in Real Life. by Samantha Irby. 

Well, this Icelandic publishing house only prints book during the full moon — then it burns the books that don’t sell well. It gets stranger: the publishing house only prints books in batches of 69, and any books left unsold as the moon begins to wane get incinerated, all to keep the Icelandic publisher’s titles in high demand.

Talk about dedication to a moment.
