Set Me On Fire Before I Blow is a mixed-medium monograph and curatorial exploration from author, artist and musician Kiki Sabater. Based on a series of notebooks kept by Sabater from 2012 to 2018, this book explores the innermost thoughts of a young female artist. Stylized photos capture intimate moments and accompany raw and unfiltered journal entries and handwritten excerpts from Sabater's notebooks. In poems, lyrics, essays, prose and photos Sabater examines what it means to be a woman, a writer, a musician, and a lover who wrestles with mental illness and shares these experiences without boundary or judgement.

“Captivating imagery, engaging on every page, Set Me on Fire Before I Blow is like nothing I’ve ever read. The author shares the deepest parts of her life with the reader. I feel like this book might be a Horcrux because I’m pretty sure part of the author’s soul is in this book. I definitely recommended.” – Amazon
