This is the ... ahem... coffee table book accompaniment to Secret Historian. There's an amazing cross-section of Steward's regular art, tattoo art, and polaroids. You also get a few excellent examples of what his Stud File looked like. It's all beautifully bound and worth every penny. If you liked Secret Historian, you owe it to yourself to find a copy of this companion piece.

Never let it be said that Sam Steward led a boring life.

Can't wait to read his biography. What a talented visionary.
