Brion Gysin: Tuning in to the Multimedia Age
Comprehensive study of Brion Gysin's life and works, exploring the range of his artistic vision.
This biographical study covers Gysin's creative work, from his experiments (with William S. Burroughs) in Cut-Up texts, to the Dream Machine, which was the first art object devised to be seen with the eyes closed. The book also includes essays from collaborators and friends, including William S. Burroughs, Barry Miles, John Giorno, Gregory Corso, Felicity Mason and Vincent J. Varga. The volume is richly illustrated with 246 photographs and drawings, 195 of them in full colour.
