This book recounts the activities of former cocaine smuggler and dealer, Zachary Swan, chronicling his outstanding scams and successes of the early 1970s and the comings and goings of his various associates, customers, and antagonists.
This is a limited edition, only 1000 copies have been made and feature unbelievable production values. The boards of the book are made from reinforced mirrors. Inside the book, the title page is numbered and signed by the collaborators – Damien Hirst, Howard Marks and Robert Sabbag – and there is a metal credit card as a bookmark in the style of an American Express card.
Inside the book, a special die-cut trench runs through the pages that feature Zachary Swan’s most daring import/export manoeuvres, and inside this trench hides a real $100 bill, rolled up. The final three digits of the note, which were specially secured from the US Treasury, correspond to the number of the edition from the run of one thousand. The edition comes in a special slip case featuring the same artwork as the endpapers: reproduced dollar bills, and all copies are numbered, sealed and protected when bought. The edition has a retail price of £1000.
