Alexandro Jodorowsky's The holy mountain ( visu )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 211 libraries worldwide
The plot follows a Christ-like character--the Thief--found lying in a dusty street, covered with flies and his own urine until being rescued/resurrected by a partial-limbed dwarf and a gang of naked boys. He then wanders through the city observing the madness of modern life, including a massacre of protesters by riot soldiers photographed by rich tourists and a tribute to the Spanish conquest of Mexico re-enacted by costumed lizards on a scale model of Aztec pyramids. The Thief joins a group of emblematic figures based on the Tarot assembled by the Alchemist to attack the mountaintop fortress of society's rulers, the Immortals. An almost purely visual bit of pop-philosophical fluff, it has been interpreted as a satire on the pretentious artistic community, the dehumanized industrial work force, the lazy bourgeois, the rigid police state, and organized religion--overlaid with the stealthy paternalism common in the '70s counterculture

We are Friends With You by FriendsWithYou (Collective)( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 86 libraries worldwide
FriendsWithYou is a contemporary fine art collective that has been spreading their unifying message of Magic, Luck, and Friendship worldwide since their founding in 2002. Expanding their mission of connectivity and reawakening via their interactive artworks, the artists Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III call on the viewer to reinvent and reinterpret the lost meaning of spirituality. Using ideas like animism, healing arts, the modern ritual and celebrated symbols, FriendsWithYou addresses the human need to relate to one another. Together, the artists have constructed their own brand of post pop visual language a la Murakami, Arturo Herrera and Yayoi Kusama and have instilled in their work the powerful ability to trigger thoughts of happiness, curiosity, and meaningful interaction. This book is a brightly coloured and comprehensive monograph that explores the journey of Sam & Tury, from their early handcrafted art objects to their recent works experimenting with animation, paintings, sculpture, public playgrounds, and published works. Originating at the crossroads of art, design, and popular culture, FriendsWithYou's output is quite unique. By presenting a superflat standpoint on their creations and allowing all types of influences, film directors, writers, anime artists, as well as contemporary artists, they are revolutionizing the art world and widening the straightforward definitions of these disciplines
