paul thek’s “96 sacraments” were written in one of his notebooks (#75, 1975).
thek wrote in a journal daily in the 1970s and 80s. upon his death he had filled almost 100 journals,
most of which were black and white composition books.

In the catalogue for paul thek: diver, a retrospective, tina kukielski writes:
“like most journals, they reveal deeply personal thoughts about friends, relationships,
and sex, as well as Thek’s private shames and insecurities,
and his efforts—like prayers—to be better in every way, especially as an artist.”
