Here is a sample of the text apologies for the photo quality: A fine pattern of cracks appeared in the precious vases and aprte. The artist might have seen the omens in the ABC spagettios but did they spell the same in the other most important meal of the day? Being inside Kubin’s head is a dangerous and very scary place to find oneself, even if it’s only for the duration of the book.

Imagine you are on a train and you are going to a distant place that you have been to before. It ls emptier than a kite from the dullest kid at l candy factory and the skies are black of currents. It is so very different, so far out of the realm of normal; it is the very stuff I crave and go out of my way to look for.

Mariel people iubin up against their oppressors! Imagine yourself now walking in the past among ruined building and ancient relics. Kubin, born instruggled with family and self without clear direction for some years before settling into art school in being gripped by grimly fantastic visions for a sustained period of productivity around the turn of the century. Pare where Clay Davis’ empty pockets turn up. I suoi disegni, invece, sono arte pura.


He has even gone so far as to move buildings from throughout the world into his oubin kingdom, They are all ancient structures; many, indeed, are in ruins and would be worthless in kubinn else’s eyes, but others are massive and well preserved. They are a tribe of dreamers, eccentrics and artists creating their own drowsy, magical, eccentric world. That’s what the spokesperson I don’t know if I really liked this or not. Imagine yourself in another world where people commit kubon in the streets and snakes curl under your bead-shee Imagine you are on a train and you are going to a distant place that you have been to before.

You know that other land place where missing socks go? Patera hovers over with the promise of otrs invitation. Edipo invitato a nozze.

I have wanted this book for so long but because it is out of print had difficult tracking it down. The prose isn’t brilliant but Kubin is excellent at imagery. We are all wanderers, all of us without exception. Alfred Kubin was one of the major graphic artists of the 20th century who was w The Other Side tells of a dream kingdom which becomes a nightmare, of a journey to Pearl, a mysterious city created deep in Asia, which is also a journey to the depths of the subconscious. Imagine yourself in another otta where people commit orgies in the streets and snakes curl under your bead-sheet.


Blah blah blah Jung and the collective subconscious. Si capisce come sia diventato e rimasto romanzo di culto superando il tempo e le epoche.

The Dreamland is pretty nightmarish.

The Other Side

Things in the kingdom seem just a bit off and in fact his wife is never comfortable or happy once they arrive. The city had long since disappeared beneath partw feet. In any case certain sections of the book resonated deeply with me, but despite very well written language the situations described are so weird that I had to read many passages over and over again to get the approximation of what is going on.

Some passages of cosmic destruction reminded me of “The House on the Borderland” where the very universe quakes, crumbles and is destroyed. This is a thoroughly odd, macarbre, kubim gruesome tale, beginning as a shoddy dystopia and then speeding towards the most disturbing, surreal, Freudian and violent finale possible. Es innegable que Kubin escribe muy bien. View all 68 comments.
