I got lucky and bought this when it first came out. Its in a nice box/slipcase with a few extra goodies. All the versions in bookstores now are just the book itself.

an awesome collection of interviews and works by lots of freaky low-brow artists. most of the interviews are with attaboy or annie owens. great short pieces, a really nice collection. and it comes in a really cool box!
