BY ROY DE FOREST. BEDFORD ARTS, 250 SUTTER STREET, SUITE 550, SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, 94108; 1988.
This is a picture book of accordion-fold construction that tells a story.
The story is not too clear. Leonardo da Vinci meets the Sasquatch. Honest.
It's like a Strauss tone poem--you know it's an adventure about fear and
courage and discovery but the story is told to your right hemisphere, not
to your left. This fable has no moral. Pure raw id jumps out at you from
thick brightly-colored pages. It looks like crayon drawing. The artist
colors outside the lines, like a hyperkinetic child with attention deficit
disorder, It is Rousseau's sleeping gypsy's nightmare.
