The first 4000 copies of PART TWO The Endless Not came with a Totemic Gift inserted into the spine area of the jewel case. Four Editions, of 1000 copies each, in copper, bone, rubber and wood, were released. The Totemic Gifts were handmade under Peter Christopherson's personal supervision in Thailand. These copies were distributed worldwide, although obviously opportunities to find them were limited and to some extent random. As far as we know none of these editions that reached stores remain unsold. We are very aware that many people will not have had the opportunity to obtain copies of the Totem Editions (indeed some may never have even seen them) so in the nick of time, we purchased a small number and held them back so as to make them slightly more generally available to regular visitors to our website. In addition to the four Totem Editions from Mute/EMI, there is also a Japanese release of the Endless Not which contains a fifth Totemic Gift item, in stainless steel.

Finally Peter Christopherson produced a sixth Totemic Gift in 23 carat gold, of which at present only two exist.

These are the six Totems:
