100% handmade, 5.5"x8.5", black+white, forty-eight pages, stapled.
This is a collection put together by Tia and I from all corners of the Internet of images and stories about death, near-death, murder, suicide, and disease. Tia and I share an interest in the subject of death and murder, as it is an ugly, harsh reality of life that most people acknowledge exists but refuse to look at. It is my belief that we cannot fully appreciate life and existence without staring right at both the beautiful and the ugly in this world.
Not only is this a collection of macabre stories, but a motivator to fully appreciate and make the most of one's life, since each and every image and story within is an example of where you are NOT, what you AREN'T, and just how alive you STILL are.
P.S. These images are not for the faint of heart. While I do challenge everyone out there to open their eyes to the side of reality that most people do not, I will warn you that these images are all real, graphic, and can make the weak-stomached feel sick. Proceed with caution, but also an open mind.
