Whiteread was invited by Salon Verlag to select a book of special importance to her, and design a new dust-jacket for it, and then present it under her own name as a 'Reprint'. She chose the 1970 children's book 'Mike and the Modelmakers' by M. Sasek. Whiteread's studio faced the company Lesney, who during the 1970's was the toy manufacturer of the Matchbox car.
