With The Light Of Truth   Straight Edge


When Dan Smith approached Memento to publish his pride and joy, we were thrilled. While I'm not Straight Edge by any means (though one of my Memento staff members is), his book (aka WTLOT) is fascinating to me; and it actually made my wife and I consider being Straight Edge for a minute.


While working on this project, there were many times that I wished I was Straight Edge, just so I could have been in this outstanding publication. The book itself is not trying to convert anyone, but all-in-all it has some amazing eye candy which comes in the form of top-notch tattoos, artwork, and messages. It is an impressive book and I really think that readers will enjoy delving into the pages.


The interview questions and profiles in this book are very uplifting and present a positive outlook on life, which can further be seen through each of the featured artisan's accomplishments. Each artist has their own profile, with interviews, a photo of themselves, and a page of artwork which was created specifically for this book. There is also a gallery of each participant's tattoos to follow their profile.


With The Light of Truth is published by Memento Publishing and was compiled by Dan Smith. 13 inches by 9 inches. 256 full-color pages. Hardcover, with a gorgeous front cover that features gold foil embossed on black saifu cloth; gold gilded edges; and a black ribbon bookmark. Each book comes shrink-wrapped. To top it all off, it's only 50 bucks!
