From the publisher: "Readers of this book will not lack for images of penises (soft and hard), drug paraphernalia, naked old men, naked young women or melancholic landscapes. Featuring a variety of well chosen papers and several special inserted elements-like a bound-in, folded flyer reading, YOUNG PERFORMERS / TRANSEXUALS NEEDED For film by DASH SNOW (Private Location), $50hr, party favors included, Must be willing to take it off, Take IT FAR' -- God Spoiled a Perfect Asshole When He Put Teeth in Yer Mouth is titled after Snow's [recent] one-person exhibition at Peres Projects, Los Angeles. This riveting and highly collectible exhibition catalogue contains full-color illustrations of Snow's Dada-esque, playful and often nasty collage works and his photographs of Lower East Side 'counter-counter-culture.' It begins and ends with production stills from Snow's 2007 video, 'Untitled (Penis Envy).'"

From Parr & Badger: "Snow began taking photographs as a teenager, as Thomas Michelli has written, 'to reclaim pockets of lost time: countless nights of hard partying that neither he nor his friends could remember the following day.' He became known for his small artist's books, in a typical zine style, which combined his snapshots, collages and found imagery with irreverant and ironic found texts, set a 'objects' against a matte black background."
