The Blotter Barn Sampler 2010 is a limited edition boxed set of 25 prints selected from Mark McCloud’s Blotter Barn collection, also known as the Institute of Illegal Images. McCloud’s images constitute the most comprehensive collection of decorated LSD blotter paper in the world. As such, the collection has been the target of two criminal trials where McCloud was forced to defend not only the collection but also his own liberty. Each image is a photographic enlargement of a selected item from the McCloud collection, which depicts that item in every detail thus revealing tiny elements normally invisible to the human eye.

Printed with archival inks on heavyweight, 100% rag, acid free paper. Custom printed aluminum box. Each print measures 11×14.” Edition of 25. Each print is signed by McCloud. San Francisco, CA, 2010.
