This 72-page book about The Sisters of Mercy is
an Italian fan-edition accompanied by either
a 7" vinyl bootleg or a 3" CD-single.
The book itsef includes a history of the band,
a gigography, a discography and most of the
lyrics up to 1987.
The lyrics are given in English and Italian
language. The translations of the lyrics are,
however, partly - hilarious ...
Still, there are plenty more entertaining
features to this book.
