With original artworkFirst edition, first printing. Letter P of 26 copies lettered A-Z signed by Hell and Wool with an original text drawing "perils/penis" signed by Hell and Wool, from a total edition of 76 hardbacks and 1,500 paperbacks. Together with a set of unbound proofs and loose sheets with two test drawings of "perils/penis" and six versions of the word "perils". The project emerged out of Hell and Wool's mutual interest in experiences associated with reading. Hell, a musician and writer, and avid reader, had for some time been assembling two-word groupings drawn from personal reading experiences. Using a selection of these pairs he and Wool worked together making visual combinations of the word couples. They settled on 57 separate designs of which appear in this book. A further 9 larger silkscreen prints were also published in a portfolio in an edition of 21.
