began as a small original handmade book published by Sub Rosa
Press and Book Beat Gallery in 2002. It is a collection of
21 original photographs by Jeffery Silverthorne taken in Goth
clubs in Detroit between 1995-2000. Many of the photos of
this limited edition book contain erotica and sexually explicit
material. The overall size of the book is 5 1/2" square. Photos
are about 2 1/4" square in size. Some are contact prints and
others are small enlargements. Photos are mounted with acid-free
photo-corners, words are printed black ink on black vellum.
The book is hand-bound in black Lakota, Nepal paper.
The artist Mog of Florida made a specially treated box/sculpture
with insect-decoupage. Each box is a unique artwork and was
buried under ground overnight to absorb a special vibration.
The book also contains a small nine verse poem by Cary Loren
based on the James Walsh movie "The Bride of Frankenstein"
and the photos in GOTH. MOG has also made individual movies
of each box and the sounds that they make. A special CDR of
the box sounds are in production. The edition of 50 copies
were signed and numbered by all participants and copies are
still available from Book Beat gallery.
