Item #31209 Uncommon Deities. David Sylvian.
(Heavenly Monkey)

Uncommon Deities.

Fukui, Atsushi (illus.)

(Vancouver, B.C.): Heavenly Monkey, 2010. Broadside measuring 22 by 15 inches. One of thirty copies—this copy marked "Position proof." Unsigned. With full-page illustration of a hermaphroditic figure, titled "The Botanist," and two smaller text figures of mushrooms, all from drawings by Atsushi Fukui. Sylvian was the former frontman for the 80s New Romantic band, Japan. The poem by Sylvian, and the accompanying artwork became part of an audio-visual installation at the Punkt Festival in Norway in 2011, itself arising from a 2003 genetic study showing the persistent lineage of the native population of the Canary Islands, despite Spanish colonization. An atmospheric piece with intriguing musical crossover, and an uncommon Heavenly Monkey title. Very fine. Item #31209
