Los Angeles, CA: Barnacle Books, 2011. Limited Edition. Original Wraps. “‘Oriana Small has pushed herself to the outermost extremes of what the body and mind are capable of—all before turning thirty years old—and now she's made it an authentic read for the rest of us to marvel at, elevating the depravity and denial inherent in the pornographic arts to a singular literary experience.’ (JAMES FREY, author of A Million Little Pieces and Bright Shiny Morning) Proclaimed "girl-pervert" Oriana Small AKA Ashley Blue, a veritable artist at heart, weaves through the intricacies of a decade in and out of the adult film industry, love, drugs, and her own firebrand of what it means to live ecstatically.” [Publisher’s blurb] Wraps feature original art by the author, unique to this edition and hand-numbered. Handmade Japanese paper DJ by designer Ted Nava (each sheet of which contains at least a strand of Small’s pubic hair!?!). Lucite slipcase created by Mike Jennings. Laid in signed Polaroid of Small by noted photographer Dave Naz.
Award-winning porn actress Blue's memoir of her decade in the business. Of the many ways we might tout this book, we will limit ourselves to only one: we are confident this is the first book ever issued with a pubic hair incorporated, at least intentionally, into the dust jacket.
