DEATH WISH: Starring Charles Bronson, Architect is based on the sensationalistic and controversial Death Wish movies, in which Charles Bronson portrays an architect who becomes a vigilante-killer.

Treyf Books by Rob Kovitz - unusual books of an indeterminate type, sort of story-picture remix books for people who can’t stomach any more schmaltzy Chicken Soup for the Soul. Treyf Books are cooked up using texts and images compiled from various sources, usually obsessively related to one or more themes, and then recombined through a process of highly subjective editing, ordering and juxtaposition.
