Dream: A Journal

November 10, 2013 on 6:34 pm | In Dream Types | 1 Comment

In 1989, at the suggestion of his analyst, designer Larry Vigon began to record every dream he could remember. He wrote each into an 11 x 14-inch sketchbook, along with an acrylic painting inspired by the dream. The result, over time, is an astonishing body of work, represented by the selections in this beautiful full-size facsimile volume. After seeing advance materials for the book, a writer in Graphis magazine said it “preserves the intimate presentation of the original warts-and-all artist’s notebook—with words scratched out in first-draft fashion, blobs of ink, traces of transferred paint throughout, all the glorious imperfections. Unmediated as it is, Vigon’s work functions like a form of meditation. At the same time the quality of the painting is that of finished art, so we experience the journal as a kind of heightened sketchbook of the unconscious.” 74 color illustrations.

  1. Very personal stuff. This is a friend of mine. We went to Art School together. His artwork is not only appropriate for his journal but very interesting and some of it very beautiful. The book is a work of art.
