The 100th Monkey Press is pleased to announce a new edition of Aleister Crowley’s Cocaine.
Aleister Crowley’s essay on cocaine was first published in the October 1917 edition of The International. His examination of cocaine and its role in society is an important document in any serious discussion of the history of recreational drugs.
Each book is bound by hand and measures 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”. 51 pages. Printed in red and black on a high quality, 70 pound text weight, acid-free paper chosen specifically for this edition. Bound using a stab style binding with the spine incorporating textured wood strips. The text is set in Berlin Sans FB font. The book is contained in a decorative silk-screened slipcase that mirrors the book’s cover and incorporates an ornate metal accent.
The book includes five original works of art commissioned especially for this edition with each art work being protected by a bound-in tissue overlay. Decorative graphics are featured throughout the book.
As an added bonus, each book comes with a hand-bound copy of Crowley’s The Drug Panic. As usual, each copy also includes a handsome bookplate and bookmark.
