I'll Die Tomorrow.
Berkeley: Del Milion Editions, 2009. Square octavo. (48)pp. One of 45 copies. Printed by Peter Koch and illustrated with digital pigment prints of seven photographs by Karen Filter. The photographs depict scenes that could have been taken straight from film noir, with gun-wielding men wearing fedoras and women in slinky dresses. Filter's photographs 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. Fitting to accompany Spillane's work, the photos were selected from Filter's "B-Movie Series" and "Detective Series." 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. As new in boards printed with a six-color letterpress take on the pulp style, with the title in bold red and yellow. The back cover features a black and white print of the side of a gun.
