This is quite impressive, including the list of the first 99.

The catalogue is way beyond the scope of collectibles I would even entertain thinking about.
Interesting history of Arion press.

Lit, it only costs about 5 pair of raw denim or so? Make it happen.

Not related, but if you haven't yet, check out the book "House of Leaves". Super original & clever, imo.

That is sick. And they have the audacity to ask for shipping!


'Tropic of Cancer/Tropic of Capricorn' are Henry Miller at his best.
Tropic of Capricorn: an interlude(around page 180) -Miller just loses his mind describing how he seduces 'the girl upstairs'.

Yeah, the whole The Rosy Crucifixion series is great. Big fan of Black Spring and the Air Conditioned Nightmare as well which is very different from his later stuff...A Devil in Paradise and Circle of Friends are also quite unexpected considering his previous stuff. As soon as I get around to finishing The Art of Being Right next one up on my "classy" reading list is Stand Still Like the Hummingbird. But Heroin Diaries likely is the junk food in between.
