Albina and the dog-men : a fantastical novel by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A darkly funny, surreal novel set in Chile and Peru, Albina and the Dog-Men is Alejandro Jodorowsky's sprawling modern myth in which sexual desire appears as a dangerous and generative force that mutates and transforms, unraveling identities and rending the social and moral fabric of a small town. Written with the stunning vision and cinematic flair he brought to his cult 1970s psychedelic freak-out films El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky turns the classic stranger-comes-to-town narrative on its head in his novel Albina and the Dog-Men. When two women--a beautiful amnesiac albino giantess and her protector, a leather-tough woman called Crabby--arrive in this South American desert town, Albina's otherworldly allure and unfettered sensuality turns men into wild animals. Chased at the same time by a clubfoot criminal, Albina and Crabby must fend off their aggressors before the town consumes itself in an orgy of lust and violence
The way of tarot : the spiritual teacher in the cards by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Book )

26 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky's insights into the Tarot as a spiritual path Works with the original Marseille Tarot to reveal the roots of Western wisdom Provides the key to the symbolic language of the Tarot's "nomadic cathedral" Transforms a simple divination tool into a vehicle for self-realization and healing Alejandro Jodorowsky's profound study of the Tarot, which began in the early 1950s, reveals it to be far more than a simple divination device. The Tarot is first and foremost a powerful instrument of self-knowledge and a representation of the structure of the soul. The Way of Tarot shows that the entire deck is structured like a temple, or a mandala, which is both an image of the world and a representation of the divine. The authors use the sacred art of the original Marseille Tarot--created during a time of religious tolerance in the 11th century--to reconnect with the roots of the Tarot's Western esoteric wisdom. They explain that the Tarot is a "nomadic cathedral" whose parts--the 78 cards or "arcana"--should always be viewed with an awareness of the whole structure. This understanding is essential to fully grasp the Tarot's hermetic symbolism. The authors explore the secret associations behind the hierarchy of the cards and the correspondences between the suits and energies within human beings. Each description of the Major Arcana includes key word summaries, symbolic meanings, traditional interpretations, and a section where the card speaks for itself. Jodorowsky and Costa then take the art of reading the Tarot to a depth never before possible. Using their work with Tarology, a new psychological approach that uses the symbolism and optical language of the Tarot to create a mirror image of the personality, they offer a powerful tool for self-realization, creativity, and healing

We are Friends With You by FriendsWithYou (Organization)( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member 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

El tesoro de la sombra : cuentos y fábulas by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cerca de doscientas historias breves, máximas y reflexiones llenas de sagacidad, poesía, encantamiento y brutalidad. Cuando las largas sombras del amanecer se a-cortan gradualmente para, al mediodía, bajo nuestros pies, convertirse en un halo negro casi invisible, muestran lo que realmente son: raíces secretas que nos dan a luz. Los cuentos cortos, mínimos, son semillas de voluminosas novelas. En el atanor de la imaginación del escritor durante largo tiempo fermentan centenares de páginas, se disuelven y por fin coagulan en unas pocas líneas que, como un elixir alquímico, permiten una extensa recreación ... El cuento corto, si es bien logrado, por su brevedad fuera del transcurso del tiempo, como un tiro de revólver, puede sumergirnos en el imposible presente. Nuestro ser auténtico es el ojo de las sombras
