Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Are you a fan of Salvador Dali? Do pages of images resonating with meaning make you smile? Then you must own this book. Part quasi-autobiography, part dream diary, part strange descriptions of "Jimland Novelties," this book is a "brilliant pastiche of crazed emotions, wonderfully textured with lush, attentive artwork [and] oddly haunting," says Hugh Bonar in a Comics Journal review. There is nothing like Jim Woodring. Period.

Format: Paperback
When it comes right down to it, what can you say about Jim Woodring's work? I mean, how can you articulate the rather slippery moods and thoughts engendered by this compelling collection of comics and zen prose? There's nothing I can say. You really have to experience it first hand. For those who aren't afraid to root around in some of the deepest, darkest, oddest corners of the subconscious (Jim's subconscious, although it might be yours, too) this book is a must.
