Mickey Spillane's short story "I'll Die Tomorrow" was originally published in Cavalier an American men's magazine in 1960. In this publication Karen Filter's noir images have been added to complement the story.

Colophon: "The original photographs are printed with a unique color technique created by Karen Filter and based on Carbro prints from the 1930s & 40s and Technicolor from the 1950s. They were selected from her 'B-Movie Series' and 'Detective Series' shot in the 1980s. The photographs were then scanned and corrected under the direction of the artist and reproduced as digital pigment prints at Magnolia Editions in Oakland, California."
