'JARRING III' is a visual book series by Mirabelle Jones that raises awareness about the reality of sexual assault. Although there is much discussion about bringing awareness to the issue of sexual assault, few people make an effort to clarify what awareness really entails. This series details first-hand accounts of assault in a visual way in order to bring attention to the subject.

JARRING III consists of 150 books published in three different designs. Each book details the story of real survivors to provide a first-hand look at the issue of assault. Instead of merely printing each survivor's tale, the books use various shapes to visually convey the gravity of assault. The idea behind the collection is to spark conversation about sexual assault and dispel some of the myths often associated with the problem.
