Barr, Donna Colbert
This book contains sexually-explicit content and violence.

It is one of the Black Manuscripts series. The transformation of a journal into a hand-made book was completed by fabric art covers using embroidery thread, cutouts, and pearly beads on the front. Inside are hand drawn panels with text telling a story of people in Nazi costume, with aliens and mythological creatures. The date "3.VIII.'77" is on the inside back cover, interpreted as 08/03/1977.
