Billy Childish Skull and Crossbones woodcut from 2004


On our most recent visit to the L-13 Archive Vaults we found these leftover woodcuts in an envelope labeled ‘billy – woodcuts for book insert’.

There were four woodcuts in the envelope all signed and dated ‘billy – 04’. These must have been leftover from either the special edition of Sex Crimes of the Future or an edition of Notebooks of a Naked Youth where we rebound the last remaining copies of the first edition published by Codex Books. We can’t remember which, but somebody out there might be able to let us know.

19 x 14 cm

One colour woodcut on Japanese Hosho paper

Signed and dated in pencil

Scarce with Childish’s signature from before he started using the gallows symbol.

Only four available.
