General Note

Cycle of Violence was first published by Atlas Press in a small paperbound format as part of our ‘Printed Head’series in 1992. There were 300 numbered copies, the first 50 of which were signed. A second edition, also a paperback, of 1000 numbered copies followed in 2002. (The large-paper signed version of this edition was never produced.) Both these editions were privately published and were only available directly from Atlas Press. The present publication is the first trade edition of this book. The author has decided not to correct the various spelling errors to be found in the drawings.” --colophon
