Sniper: A novel

Christopher Russell
Bedwetter Books
Artists' Books
16 × 23.5 × 2 cm

Sniper loosely follows the story of The Baltimore Snipers, examining the relationships of paired serial killers as an ultimate expression of repressed desire. Much of the text’s 200 pages are illustrated, largely in color including drawings scratched into photographic emulsion, which has now become Russell’s signature style. The release of Sniper revives the Bedwetter brand, which achieved notoriety during its 12 issue existence with a destroy-to-enjoy design strategy and an embrace of difficult literary and visual material.

This publication was funded in part by a grant from Printed Matter.
