Original artwork used for Psychedelia book cover
Now Playing: silence

Here is the complete "Sinfonia Shamanica" painting by Andy Debernardi that he kindly licenced for us to use for Psychedelia. As you can see, the image was cropped in order to fit the book's dimensions. The printed book cover came out slightly more green and less blue than the original work, which enhanced the rain forest feel. High quality giclee reproductions of this and other Debernardi paintings can be purchased at his website. If you're lucky, you may get a chance to buy an original piece (I happily did)!

Interview about the "Psychedelia" book
Now Playing:

Klemen at the highly active and popular It's Psychedelic Baby website did an interview with me recently concerning the Psychedelia book and other hallucinogenic delights. Check it out here:

Interview with Patrick

On a general front, the book has definitely hit European retailers now, as I've heard from several people who have purchased it in the last week. Next week it should be available in the US as well, but I believe you can already order it from several mail-order dealers, such as Forced Exposure.

Psychedelic creativity experiment in the 1950s
Now Playing: BLO "Chapter One"

The Psychedelia book is basically a text-based work, but it contains a 16-page color inlay, and some more images scattered about. Here is a full color page which didn't make it into the final manuscript. It is a late '50s magazine clipping which illustrates Oscar Janiger's famous experiment in which dozens of artists were given LSD and were asked to paint a small indian Kachina doll that Janiger had. The result was very varied and interesting, and has been followed up in recent times. Read more about this in Psychedelia, below is the original c1959 report.
