Basel, Switzerland (AHN) - It was in invitation no thief could ever refuse.

The organizers of the Basel Shift Festival found this out when a thief ran off with the book titled "Steal this Book."

The book with the words "Steal this Book" emblazoned across its cover had been placed in an incubator by artists from the Viennese artist's group Ubermorgen, where the thief took it unnoticed.

LOL..some people just take things so literally.
I might even be tempted if it told me to 'steal this book.'
Some very interesting info inside it too.

if it's the Hoffman book, it's not news! It was always being stolen, from when it was first published!
