Produced by a member of the radical avant-garde movement No! Art, "a form of anti-art in which artists rebelled against the destructive elements in contemporary industrial society," focusing chiefly on exploitation and pollution (see Emanuel K. Schwartz and Reta Schacknove Schwartz, "NO-Art" in "Leonardo," Vol. 4, no. 3, Summer, 1971, p. 245). The present work incorporates vignettes littered with creepy-crawlies, urine, and misspellings, punctuated with jarring photographs. One copy located in OCLC as of July, 2020, at Yale (miscatalogued "Marbels from Cockroach Morseleum").
