There’s really a lot of amazing body modification content in here, and now that BME has chosen to delete this archive of articles, this is the only place you can get them. Because my goal is to make sure this content is always available, it’s released under a creative commons license and you can download the complete 460 page PDF file here for free (this also means you can reprint it yourself).
It’s 460 pages in a 6″x9″ trade format. Two versions are available (click to purchase):
Here are a few samples, and you can of course download the PDF for more (and you can click here to see my softcover copy and look at the real thing to review the quality):
