A sizeabe collection of approximately 58 pieces consisting primarily of poscards, most of which feature notes in the hand of and signed by Manson and directed to a correspondent in Missouri between 1999 and 2001. The collection includes signed postcards of San Quentin, as well as a variety of other subjects including trains, Santa Claus, Marlon Brando (in The Wild One) upon which Manson comments: "REMINDS me of you only you look better." Several of the postcards feature his original (quite abstract) artwork accomplished in pencil, crayon and ink. The content of the notes features Manson's typical schizophrenic ramblings. On a postcard bearing an image of Santa Claus riding a chopper beside his reindeer, Manson titles it: "LAST TIME I WAS OUT of my CAGE" and writes on the verso: "what can you do besides money & clide - can you plant a weve-find 4 your self can you milk a cow or make butter or cheeze - young in a woman is short, Earth woman will survive - LISSEN to your Holy mother when I tell you real rich can fall & fade but what you know how to do will endure...". Well... you get the idea...Much more fun and freaky content, yours to discover! Overall condition, very good.
