Doing Dirty Work (chapbook)

“Doing Dirty Work” is a perfect-bound chapbook published exclusively for Brian James Freeman’s supporters on Patreon in April 2023. Featuring a full-color cover and full-color interior illustrations by François Vaillancourt, this is the third of our chapbooks to be printed entirely in full-color, inside and out.

About the Chapbook:
Simon couldn’t remember the new kid’s name. His cover name had been in the paperwork, of course, but the instructions and maps and timelines were burned two days ago in Simon’s fireplace. No paper trail allowed. This was the Kid’s first gig and Simon hoped he would be dependable. From everything he knew, the company did a good job of vetting people, but you had to be a bit of a sicko to do this work and anyone who would leap at the chance was likely problematic in a lot of ways. Ultimately, you didn’t really know how you’d respond to the work until the first time you had to do it for real…

Publication Format:
Each chapbook Brian publishes for his Patreon supporters is “housed” in a custom-printed envelope with a fine linen finish and the Lividian Publications logo printed on it in silver metallic ink. This chapbook was the sixth to be perfect bound, the third to be printed entirely in full-color, and the first to feature the new style of envelope with the artwork printed directly on it. The inside-cover features full-color artwork. This chapbook was also signed by Brian James Freeman and François Vaillancourt, and hand-numbered. Limited to a print run of 500 copies.
