The Getty Research Institute has acquired a 101-leaf sketchbook by L.A. artist-poet-provocateur [Marjorie] Cameron. It is dated 1957, the year the LAPD vice squad raided Ferus Gallery over an erotic drawing Cameron made while on peyote.

Cameron’s bio features appearances by Wallace Berman, Dennis Hopper, Kenneth Anger, Philip K. Dick, L. Ron Hubbard, and Satan. If there’s not already a film in the works about her life, somebody isn’t paying attention.
