The Crazy World of... AOS

... just following up on the earlier post on Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Having compared him to Austin Osman Spare, I felt I should also share this wonderful report on a recent AOS exhibition for everyone who isn't familiar with his works yet.

If you are interested in buying AOS books two very good places to start out from are Robert Ansell's Fulgur and Mogg Morgan's Mandrake. Alternatively, this is a great place to find information online.

If you wish to immerse yourself deeper into the strange and wonderful lives of AOS and Jodorowsky I recommend these biographies as great starting points. Actually, it's not too late to put them on your holiday gift-wishlists...
