Product Description

Synopsis

This is an award-winning volume of apocalyptic and utopian visionary art. This is the largest collection of visionary art ever assembled on the subjects of apocalypse, millennium and utopia, including essays by Stephen Jay Gould and the Dalai Lama. Originally a landmark exhibition at the trailblazing American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, "The End is Near!" presents the biggest collection ever made of visionary art on the subjects of apocalypse, millennium and utopia. Fringe artists and marginalised voices outline their visions of the current age and beyond, with companion essays contributed by an astonishing assortment of cultural luminaries, including Stephen Jay Gould, Reverend Howard Finster, Adam Parfrey and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

My wife and I just bought the hardcover and recommend it highly. We loved the reading the background of the authors. It proves that you do not have to be a celebrity or athlete or CEO to be "considered successful". Some of the world's greatest talent are never heard from. We have Dilettante Press to thank for bringing us this fine collection of artists. I work with libraries and recommend this book to all of them.

"The End is Near" makes you yearn for Divine inspiration regardless of its source or circumstance. The artwork is stunning, the artist bios are awe-inspiring and the essays are thought provoking, empowering and spiritually comforting. This is an amazing gift to give to others...but do yourself a favor and give it to yourself first. And then go out and pick up a paintbrush, a pencil, or a piece of coal and create. This book will make you realize that the best art you ever see could be just below the surface of your own consciousness.

This is the ultimate guide to discovering new and well known visionary artists and checking out their work. Each artist has a bio, picture, and several paintings- very cool essays too from interesting people like Adam Parfrey and Steven Jay Gould. All huge color photos- worth the price.

There are lots of books out there on outsider art-but this is great because it's a guide to art from all over the world with one theme in mind. It helps put the whole genre into a form that is more easily understandable and, best of all, fun. I really love this book!

This book is an excellent introduction to outsider art, and to the artists themselves, whose stories are as interesting as the tales their paintings weave. The book itself is also beautifully constructed, and is something I treasure.
