Red Rock Black Sun

33.33

by Will Cloughley

"Edward Abbey and his Monkey Wrench Gang would love Red Rock Black Sun for its beautiful vision of what they really were striving for!"
— Lawrence Ferlinghetti

In this graphic parable of a philosophical walkabout in the old-earth, red rock desert of the American Southwest, a lone pilgrim steps out of the modern world and finds himself on a surprising journey of both outer and inner discovery. Under a mysterious black sun, he confronts the primal announcements of nature in a landscape carved by water and air. Here, eons of slow sculpture have opened the earth to reveal mysteries of the deep past, and perhaps the key to his future.

Red Rock Black Sun: An American Walkabout is written and illustrated by San Francisco artist Will Cloughley (1938–2019), who based the story on his experiences and meditations in the Arizona wilderness. Cloughley’s text and images reflect the landscape that inspired him, alternating between lush layers of color and stark iconography. Originally compiled as a handmade artist s book, Red Rock Black Sun has been reimagined and published in an oversize deluxe paperback format by Wonderella Printed. Its format is in homage to Roger Dean s Dragon's Dream line of books, which themselves echoed the design of 1970s vinyl LP sleeves.

Published by Wonderella Printed (2010). Being a large-format black paperback, Red Rock Black Sun proves difficult to keep in mint condition on the shelf. Any copies ordered from the Peculiar Parish Bookshop are new with very minor (if any) shelf wear. We will pack your order carefully and post it to you in a reinforced LP mailer.

36-page paperback book, illustrated throughout with full-color drawings.
