As capitalist running dog days of August approach, we are preparing to release one of the most controversial books ever published—THE LITTLE RED BOOK OF COMMIE PORN.
Long suppressed and banned in Red China, this incendiary work has never before been seen by Western eyes. So shocking and graphic are its contents that anyone found possessing it in the People’s Republic faced years of re-education or—during Mao’s reign—execution. The Great Helmsman himself urged party members to “strike down pinko porno!” yet was rumored to have kept a copy under his pillow. Throughout Peking, anti-Commie Porn posters warned citizens to “Pound Bourgeois Stroke Books with Red Fists of Fury!”…“Oppose Sex Worship!”... “Struggle Vigorously—Defeat Yankee-Panky!”, etc.
In 2013, two notorious California-based artists—Terri Lloyd and Norman Conquest—conspired to obtain a copy of the original banned edition. Disguised as tourists, they traveled to China and smuggled out a rare, running dog-eared copy.They have devoted nearly a year to disinfecting its pages, fine-scanning the lewd illustrations, and translating the often cryptic Red Guard “pornoganda” slogans into English.
This coming Labor Day, Black Scat Books will unleash this profusely illustrated (complete and unexpurgated) volume in a special limited edition of 100 copies.
