Available in a 1st edition of 41 CDRs with handcrafted, one-of-a-kind 24-page booklets, comprising a dedicated poem as well as photography by Zachary Corsa and diagrams of occult origin.
The xeroxed pages can distinctly differ from copy to copy – moreover the colored pages can be affected by the xeroxing process inasmuch as the used photocopier adds stripes and stains to the reverse side at times.
