WHAT IS VISIONARY ART?

      The sources of the visionary experience are many and varied: dreams, trance, madness, meditation, entheogens... This little book examines them all, pursuing both 'Visions of Light' and 'Visions of Darkness'. Through the art and writings of Fuchs, Klarwein, Giger, Venosa, Johfra, De Es, Grey and more, this new and unusual movement in art is put into proper perspective.

"...Concise as an instrument for presenting the current state and dimension of the visionary phenomenon." - DE ES Schwertberger

      Note: This is a new edition of the classic Manifesto. The original First Draft of a Manifesto of Visionary Art was published in a limited edition of 200 signed and numbered copies - which sold out years ago. The new edition is identical to the first, but unlimited and unsigned, with better quality printing and paper.

"Texts like Alex Grey's The Mission of Art and Laurence Caruana's vital Manifesto have helped define a Visionary canon through and beyond western art (...) to a transpersonal, transtemporal field of resonance - a zone of imaginal connections and hidden harmonies that shape image-making outside of historical time." - Erik Davis, author of TechGnosis
