THE SIGHTSEER'S COMPLEMENT is now available for purchase.

A lavishly illustrated volume presenting the work of 22 renowned international cartoonists and writers creating pornographic works under a nom de plume. The book is intended as an homage to The Traveller's Companion, the series of cheaply-produced paperbacks edited by Maurice Girodias and his Paris-based publishing house Olympia Press, resulting in the publication of Henry Miller, Lawrence Durrell, Anaïs Nin, William S. Burroughs, Terry Southern, Vladimir Nabokov, Samuel Beckett and other much less reputable authors. Olympia's output was one that was equal parts smut and art. The Sightseer's Complement is small so that it may be carried about on a walk or on the subway, with great ease.

ALL SHIPPED.

The last of "The N-Word" books and prints were finally shipped out today to all Indiegogo backers of the project. If you have not received your order by now, it is due to arrive in the next week. My thanks to all, for your patience during this process.

Additionally, a feature story concerning the publication of "The N-Word"appeared recently in "Hyperallergic." Read it here: http://hyperallergic.com/322152/n-word-peter-williams-monograph-rotland-press/

I hope "The N-Word" is to the liking of all, and that it provokes, informs and gives pleasure in equal measure. Without your support, this project would not have been able to move forward.

A great deal of art leverages mystique by processing experience through varying layers of abstraction. The N-Word, a new collection of paintings by the artist Peter Williams — published by Rotland Press and with contributions by writers Lynn Crawford and Bill Harris — does …

A great deal of art leverages mystique by processing experience through varying layers of abstraction. The N-Word, a new collection of paintings by the artist Peter Williams — published by Rotland Press and with contributions by writers Lynn Crawford and Bill Harris — does the opposite: it lays out a response to systemic violence against people of color by the police in graphic and direct terms.
