Format: Paperback
All I can say is, get your hands on this as fast as you can. The illustrations alone are indescribably beautiful - meticulously drawn in a style you will never forget. Philosophically, there is much to chew on here, literally the life-work of an obvious eccentric genius. This is NOT P.C. material by any means, much of it veering dangerously close to what many would label racism. This, however, makes the work no less intriguing.

Szukalski was a genius. He may not have been completely sane, but he was a genius. His artistic abilities are absolutely unchallengable: look at these sculptures and try to find their equal anywhere. He could imagine the unimaginable and then create it in stone or bronze or plaster. The great sin is that so much of his work is lost due to political upheaval. Likewise, his illustrations are exactingly obsessive representations of his great theories: Zermatism! Protong! Yetisynin! He was utterly convinced of his ideas, and he makes forceful arguments for them: if you are convinced of their truth, I would advise you to seek professional psychiatric help.

But: whether or not there's even a shred of truth to his (admittedly cranky) theories, they are a fascinating expression of a completely unique character, one you should discover. If you value quirky genius, Szukalski's will keep you happily enthralled for a long time.

I''ll make it brief:

Are you a strong enforcer of politically correct statements?

Are you scared of outlandish ideas?

If you answered yes to either one of the above, then move on, and be happy (there is plenty for you elsewhere).

If, on the other hand, you are a mad seeker of truth, and I mean MAD, and you would visit the wildest minds of the ages to learn what you want to know, buy a copy of Protong. You will learn something new even by skimming the text and looking at the drawings before you go to bed at night: guaranteed.

I wish I could push this book hard enough. It's a coffee table sized volume, ca. 100 pp., full color, glossy paper, and millions of amazing drawings and illustrations done by the author, who is not the amazing artist Robert Williams -- he is wrongly listed as the author but writes a great introduction. The real author? "Stanisław Szukalski (13 December 1893 – 19 May 1987) was a Polish-born painter and sculptor who became a part of the Chicago Renaissance. He also developed the pseudoscientific-historical theory of Zermatism, positing that all human culture was derived from post-deluge Easter Island and that mankind was locked in an eternal struggle with the Sons of Yeti ("Yetinsyny"), the offspring of Yeti and humans. He illustrated this theory in his works."

It's true. He's as loony as all the great ones, and his art was soooo fabulous. At least google him and THINK about buying a copy of this frickin beautiful book!!!!!
