"In ‘House of Coates’, writer ZELLAR pieces together the story of legendary recluse L.B. Morrison. Working from a handful of encounters and con-tradictory conversations, a sketchy paper trail and often confounding interviews with individuals who may or may not have been 'associates' of LBM (including Morrison’s former collaborator A.Soth), ZELLAR attempts to reconstruct one episode from LBM’s decidedly episodic life.

In winter of 2011, ZELLAR finally crossed paths with his evasive subject, and was – with Morrison’s permission – granted access to the results of an MMPI (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory) test that LBM sub-mitted to in August of 2009, along with the administrating psychiatrist’s copious notes. Finally, in late December of last year, ZELLAR received in the mail a duct-taped shoebox – marked 'PERISHABLE' – containing almost two hundred photographs that Morrison termed “disposable documents of the approximate period in question.”

From these raw materials designer Hans SEEGEER has assembled a book that Morrison himself has pronounced, “Probably close enough to what might or might not have happened, and that’s as much as I’ve learned to expect from the so-called ‘real world.’” (publisher's note)
