Amazon.comIt's not clear whether the third issue of The Ganzfeld should be regarded as a periodical or a book--but either way, it's gloriously illustrated and esoterically insightful. Its graphically extravagant essays often consider the spectacular results when worlds collide. The cover depicts an ordinary moth given Blakean magnitude by an EverSmart Pro Scanner. Julie Lasky profiles Tony Sarg, who turned tiny cartoon characters into godlike giants by inventing Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Hitchcock explains the elaborately artificial Rube Goldberg devices needed to create "reality" in what he called "My Most Exciting Picture" (Rope). Peter Blegvad illustrates the amazing impact on his imagination of the light-bulb-in-the-milk-glass scene fromHitchcock's Suspicion—it provoked an intellectually superb and astoundingly extended poetical meditation. Lawrence Weschsler unveils his lost essay on Edward Snow, the world's strangest explicator of Bruegel and Vermeer. The Ganzfeld 3 is like that spore that invades the ant's brain in Weschsler's book on the Museum of Jurassic Technology: once it gets inside your head, your imagination will never be the same. --Tim Appelo Book DescriptionTucked inside issue number 3 of The Ganzfeld, for your reading and looking pleasure, are humorous picture stories on color theory, milk, where we go when we die, and the lost genre of blank books. And that's just the usual. Bringing together a unique group of designers, illustrators, cartoonists, and artists, The Ganzfeld provides the crispest picture of the state of graphic arts to be found anywhere. Issue number 3 features a unique collaboration between The Ice Storm author Rick Moody and artist Fred Tomaselli, a new picture story by designer Geoff McFetridge, and even an illustrated essay by Alfred Hitchcock. Lengthy comics and picture stories are contributed by an international group including Renée French, Ron Regé Jr., and Adam Dent. This installation of the anthology alsoputs the spotlight on history: Lawrence Weschler writes about Brueghe, two prominent design writers, Andrea Codrington and Julie Lasky, each contribute articles on lost design arts of the past, while the Hairy Who (Jim Nutt, Karl Wirsum, etc.) are given a 30 page retrospective. An invaluable resource and pleasure source for anyone interested in the graphic arts and all their various manifestations. Praise for The Ganzfeld #2:
3.5 stars (out of 4). --Jane
Reading The Ganzfeld is like leafing through a very bright eccentric person's journal. The Ganzfeld is just plain rad--a true artist's book. --The Philadelphia Weekly
Magisterial … It's a pretty rich banquet. --Eye
The Ganzfeld (or the Wholefield, as the few of us versed in German call it) is the most compelling and intelligent collection of visual stories I've seen since RAW. --Stefan Sagmeister
