I dropped some skinny on another thread and want to post about the darkest creepiest book Outlaw has ever done.

Ash is a Case Study produced by Johns Hopkins Conte institute for the study of childhood schizophrenia. Childhood schizophrenia is a real albite extremely rare occurrence. Cases under the age of 10 are considered the rarest and most damaging occurrences of this sickness.

In 1957 an 8 year old appeared fairly normal except for some mild social issues. She received a diary from her mother that Christmas.

She was diligent about writing in her diary at first. The in early March there was a tragic car accident and her Mother was killed.

Shortly after the accident she starts to mention a new friend named Ash in her diary. The diary entries start to change and grow darker and darker. Little drawings become more and more disturbing as her "relationship" with Ash evolves into the depths of her schizophrenia.

She resents her father for working all the time. This is a man that has nearly shut down from the grief of losing his wife.

His sister, moves into the house to help care for her. This infuriates her who thinks the Aunt is trying to replace her Mommy.

Ash is a journey into the mind of a deeply disturbed child schizophrenic and her eventual surrender to her madness.

In 1975 the actual diary was acquired by a Psychiatrist at the Conte Institute. He was so taken with the book he felt it should be a case study.

In 1977 the diary was re-produced as a hard cover Case Study.

The Case study book is color scans page by page of the Diary.

The scans are of actual hand printed and hand drawn pictures. Each case book comes with an "actual" hand written page from the original diary.

This is both a book test and a bizarre piece.

Contributions and routines from Vic Nadata, Bobby Hasbun and Gary Kreiss.

The book is a limited edition of 150 units. Each unit comes with the book, an original hand written diary page and a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Retail is $150 shipping the first of February

Starting today I'm offering a 10 day only pre-order price of $110

The webpage will be up shortly or you can contact me directly.

May the spirits haunt you!

Just the premise of the story alone is the done deal for me.

But some of us will probably like to see some pictures of this soon. How it looks inside and outside.

It's good to feel excited again. Smile

Thank you Smile

I just want to note that the name Ash and Alice and the Hopkins University are for posting and webpage google protection.

Alice, Ash and Hopkins University are not the actual names on and in the book so feel free to refer to them as that.

Here's a test page and I'll explain it a bit because I won't be posting many more here.

Her mother died suddenly 2 months after she started the diary. The first 2 months she was fairly normal, maybe a little odd at times, but she's eight.

The printing she did was nice, not great. The drawing somewhat accurate. At the point in the diary where this entry would be, it had been about 30 days since her mother died. Ash has been around the past 10 days at this point.

Her writing has gotten darker and odd at time, her artwork creepy (Typical scary kids style) has radically started to go down hill. That's the next 2 months and then it goes deeper and darker.

Hope ya like it Smile BTW What you see below is the look of 50% of the book but the last part goes off the chart madness.
