Art Book Recommendations?

Post by DireWolf » Mon Oct 08, 2018 2:31 pm

So I had a nice recreational weekend at home this past weekend and at one point opened up my brand new copy of "Be Here Now" by Ram Dass and was blown away. After a while it was pretty hard to read anything and that's when I decided I'd like to invest in some books with psychedelic artwork that I can look at for future recreational weekends. So far I'm probably going to grab an Alex Grey book or two and a Salvador Dali book. Does anyone have any other recommendations?

I don't have a specific book, but looking at MC Escher works is always interesting in any state of mind. 8-)

Any art by Stanley Mouse is profoundly trippy to me

This may not be what you're lookin' for, it's a photography book but an awesome one to get lost in it is.
