No. 245 in an edition of 2000 sets. Forty cards (complete), numbered 1 through 39, with two different number 13 cards (as issued), cards measure 6.4 by 8.2 cm. Includes a small, 5.4 by 6.7 cm, 8-pp. booklet, a sticker (now adhered to the case cover), housed in a clear plastic case. The cards are fine, and the booklet is near fine. The case is very good with light scratches, but one of the hinges is loose. Issued on the tenth anniversary of the infamous massacre where over nine hundred people died committing “revolutionary suicide” under the leadership of Rev. Jim Jones. These cards feature scenes from the Peoples Temple Agricultural Projects, commonly referred to as Jonestown, with illustrations by several noteworthy artists, including Raymond Pettibon and Gary Panter. The back of the cards, printed in purple, feature two puzzles illustrated by Panter and Jeff Gaither. Other artists include Robert Armstrong, J.R. Williams, Carol Lay, Anthony Mostrom, Mike Matthews, KAZ, Carel Moiseiwitsch, Gary Wray, XNO, Bob X, Krystine Kryttre, Oisif Egaux, Dan Wandery, Penny Moran, Dennis Worden, J.

The booklet includes a list of the artists, and two small images of the completed puzzles. A scarce, if odd, memento of a brutal cult leader and the devastation he left behind. First Edition.
