Banned Books

A series of three banned books: In Cold Blood, Psycho, and American Psycho.

Our nation has a long history of challenging provocative and influential literature. This series highlights books banned for, amongst many things, the depiction of violence. The illustrations are informed by perplexing dream sequences that take place in each novel. In Psycho, Norman Bates sees his mother drowning in quicksand; Perry encounters a giant snake in In Cold Blood; distorted television fantasies permeate American Psycho.
