I'll Die Tomorrow by Mickey Spillane
I'll Die Tomorrow by Mickey Spillane. Berkeley, Del Milion Editions, 2009. Printed by Peter Koch and illustrated with digital pigment prints of seven photographs by Karen Filter.
Karen Filter made her name on the Los Angeles music scene in the 1980s, photographing everyone from jazz greats like Dizzy Gillespie to Devo and the Go-Go's. These photos were selected from her "B-Movie Series" and "Detective Series," which have a vintage aesthetic and were originally printed using a unique color technique that she created based on Carbro prints from 1930s and 1940s and Technicolor from the 1950s.
