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 I read that many of the references are outdated or incestuous.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.

Ulysses

Review by Keenan Reed
Nothing out there will make you work harder as a reader than James Joyce's Ulysses. I would caution against diving in headfirst without a reading companion, such as the Bloomsday Book, by Harry Blamires--a no-frills, line by line guidebook that I found eminently helpful. Strangely, the most common criticism I hear about Joyce is that his writing is pretentious, and that he only works his literary miracles in order to show off his literary genius; This viewpoint always confuses me--It makes me wonder if other scientists thought Einstein was showing off when he developed relativity theory. I mean, if someone is uniquely capable, why should they be criticized for flexing that ability? But Whatevs. Joyce famously commented that it took him fifteen years to write this book, and it should take you fifteen years to read it, and while the statement is a bit of an exaggeration to be sure, it's truer than it is false. So happy hunting, and don't be afraid to take notes!

The Technopriests Vol. 3: The Perfect Game

Review by David Zhang
a comical ending to an intriguing series by Jodorowsky. in this book, the Supreme Technopriest has a final confrontation with his arch-nemesis, the techno-techno cult. wacky and cheesy at times, but fun to read.

Transmetropolitan Vol. 1: Back on the Street

Review by Gavin Ray
This book is awesome! Mind blowing journalistic anarchy stuff!

Y: The Last Man Vol. 1: Unmanned

Review by Gavin Ray
This book is kind of silly. It was fun and a great intro to graphic novels.

Tekkonkinkreet

Review by David Zhang
friendship, youth, and gangsters with a touch of magical surrealism. Highly recommended
