John Waters special package (PR-HB,P2,SD#7,GKsb)


Special bundle including 4 items.

The original PRANKS book featured in-depth interviews with John Waters, Abbie Hoffman, Mark Pauline, Joe Coleman, Bruce Conner and many more. This ValuPak gives the limited edition HARDBACK (only 500 copies made) printed on Superior Glossy Art Paper — supersedes all previous editions for sale on Internet — for noticeably sharper photo reproduction. Pranks 2 continues the conversation (also on Superior Glossy Art Paper), also adding six essays on pranks by V. Vale, and a section on Internet pranks with interviews with the redoubtable Frank Discussion, a culture-hacker. Other interviews include John Waters, Ron English, Jello Biafra, monochrom, SRL’s Karen Marcelo, John Law, and the Suicide Club, Cacophony Society, Billboard Liberation Front, Paul Krassner, Julia Solis, and more.

Also includes our rare George Kuchar book (George was a major influence on John Waters), and an original copy of Search & Destroy #7 featuring John Waters – preserved by V. Vale for over 40 years.

Pranks is absolutely fascinating – remarkable source material for any experimental psychologist. It crosses the whole spectrum from mere pranks and practical jokes into concept art and the shaky foundations of a lot of everyday reality, and beyond that into pure psychopathy, in a few cases. One of your very best books yet.” — J.G. Ballard on Pranks

“Hilariously funny, but thought-provoking. A perfect example of Vale’s urban anthropology at its best.” — J.G. Ballard on Pranks 2
