In addition to machines, tools, and pigments, this included design sheets, tracings, stencil ruboffs, paper ephemera (news articles and images that might make good designs), photos, receipt books, addresses for supply sources, and correspondence. These stockpiles were closely guarded treasure, the tangible evidence of the art that walks away and dies. This seldom-shared legacy was passed on to a few confidants who might be worthy of continuing the hermetic practice.This book gathers together a variety of Sailor Jerrys trove: flash, rough drawings for unique pieces, unfinished works, and more of the careful line drawings featured in Sailor Jerry Tattoo Drawings. Also included are a couple of rare business cards, several photos of Jerry and his cave taken on Ed Hardys first trip to meet him in 1969, and more.
