Kelsey Brookes: Psychedelic Space (Gingko Press) $60.00 – Kelsey Brookes is a trained biochemist, and this book consists of pieces based on the molecular structure of subatomic particles of, you guessed it, hallucinogenic drugs. Guess what else that will blow your mind? HE HAS THOSE MOLECULAR STRUCTURES MEMORIZED. My brain is falling out of my head just thinking about this. Oh! And! It has gatefold spreads, a sticker sheet, and a clear molecular overlay on one of the LSD pieces so you can see how the molecules match up with the painting. There’s another booklet bound within (books inside of books, like a fucking fractal). There’s even some glow-in-the-dark business here. If this isn’t all enough to melt your mind, there are essays by Hamilton Morris, Leoni Bradbury, Richard M. Doyle, and a visual essay by Ryan McGinness, as well as a dialogue with Kelsey Brookes by Anthony Kiedis.
