I’ve got to tell you, I had a real mind-warping moment with this book. I can’t think of too many (non-chemically-assisted) art immersions that have altered my consciousness more than Intelligent Sentient?. In 64 pages, artist and commercial illustrator, Luke Ramsey, and a group of collaborators (including Finlay Pogue, Jesse Jacobs, Emmanuel Romeuf) create a bizarre alternative world that is as alien as it is familiar. And it is this ability to rapidly oscillate between the known and the unknown, the real and the imagined, that makes Intelligent Sentient? so effectively psychoactive. The colors in this book are amazing, as is the print quality and the hallucinogenic intensity of the imagery. There is only the suggestion of a narrative and certain visual themes that worm their way throughout the piece. The effect is that the visual narrative seems to be constantly, frantically pointing to things that, when you strain to resolve them, don’t actually appear to be there. I found the resulting effect to be very disorienting and trippy. When’s the last time your consciousness got altered just by looking at a book? – Gareth Branwyn

"To celebrate life and to mark the seasons, these wild men don powerful primitive masks, dress in fur, skins and horns, and drape themselves in clattering chains and clanking bells."

Pretty much an essential read for anyone who cares about art in general.

James McMullan, an illustrator and watercolorist known for his popular theatrical posters for Lincoln Center as well as various children’s book covers, has created a beautiful memoir entitled Leaving China. This book of childhood “visual memories” combines short stories and haunting paintings about growing up during the turmoil of World War II. http://winkbooks.net/post/112225633288/leaving-china-a-painted-memoir-about-growing-up

love it, lived in moscow in the early 80's and always used to love seeing these kinds of posters.  My father (who worked for the US embassy at the time) used to refer to this style as "socialist realism"
