Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality

Review by Sebastian (John)
One of the most stimulating books I've read in many years. Thought-provoking, at times humorous, and well researched, this volume will challenge one of the most deeply (and now strongly argued) precepts of contemporary America...Monogamy! Drawing on studies of the Bonomo as well as modern hunter-gatherer societies, the authors argue that some contemporary societies, and most probably early human societies, were "fiercely" egalitarian...and that this extended to sexual relations. One might say that the "hippy" idea of "free love" predated the delightful 60's by many generations, and that it had (and should still have) an honored role in human history. Highly recommended. I loved the book and would delight in discussing it with folks who read it.

Madwoman of the Sacred Heart

Review by Future Man
Jodorowski and Moebius are both in top form in this terribly disturbing and reality warping religious science fiction story.

Percy Gloom

Review by Future Man
Do you remember the TV show Rugrats? Since then the creator has been delving into comics and this is her debut. Totally weird, totally amazing!

Pinocchio

Review by Future Man
New adaptation of a classic story, turned silent graphic novel by the co-creator of the Persepolis movie adaptation.

Forming Vol. 1

Review by Future Man
Modern mythological origin story exploring concepts of consciousness, spirituality and colonialism.

The Complete Essex County

Review by Future Man
One of the most exciting new writer/artists to break into comics since I started reading. This was his breakout and only a few years later, he is now known for writing some of the best books DC comics is publishing and also writes and draws the awesome post-apocalyptic adventure story Sweet Tooth published by Vertigo.

Six Novels in Woodcuts

Review by Future Man
Beautiful wordless comics told entirely through woodcut prints. Lynd Ward captures the horror of a post-WWI Germany within his existentially horrific style. Expressionism has never looked so good.

The Monkey Wrench Gang

Review by Forest Tapley
This book is incredible! I first read "Desert Solitaire" and so I imagined E.A.'s writing from his nonfiction which was great, but nothing like his imaginative storytelling. "The Monkey Wrench Gang" is an exciting and classic adventure, it's instigating, inspiring, thought-provoking and offers an honest (if idealistic) glimpse into the "radical environmentalist" sabotage culture from the 70s. I particularly enjoy his detailed knowledge and descriptive prose that brings the book to life and educates you in the process. What more can I say? Read it! What a wonderful book!

American Character: A Photographic Journey

Review by David Zhang
some guy took a picture of me that ended up in this book

Forming Vol. 1

Review by David Zhang
Psychedelic. Funny. a twisted retelling of the creation myths of several ancient civilizations. this is book 1 of a trilogy.

Arcana V: Musicians on Music, Magic & Mysticism

Review by Peter Olmsted
I love this idea. It's several essays and they're definitely hit or miss and some of the artists are pretty obscure but some of them are my favorite musicians of all time.

The Druid Sourcebook

Review by Peter Olmsted
Pretty dry, and uses a lot of obscure words without explanation. Interesting none the less.

Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats

Review by Peter Olmsted
Fantastic book. Very detailed explanation of the nourishing and problematic effects of several kinds of food. Super fascinated, has references, but I'm not sure how reliable it is. I read that many of the references are outdated or incestuous. Still like it a lot though.

Tekkonkinkreet

Review by Peter Olmsted
Whimsically swooping high flying adventure. Complete with intense violence, emotions and a quirky sort of humor. Easily one of my favorite books in the Library.

Kramers Ergot Vol. 5

Review by David Zhang
an eclectic collection of short stories and art. my favorite story is the one by Kevin Huizenga called "Jeepers Jacobs" about a professor of theology arguing in favor of 'eternal conscious torment' (E.C.T.). a gem of a story.

The Invisibles Vol. 1: Say You Want a Revolution

Review by David Zhang
Psychedelic, shamanic, avant garde, brutal.. these words barely scratches the surface of this intriguing series. The Invisibles is what inspired the Matrix - you will see many parallel themes as you read on - but in some ways it's much more psychedelic and mind-blowing.
