Nick Blinko was awarded the grand prix of the prestigious “Triennial of Self-taught Visionary Art” at Belgrade in February of 2021. This book is effectively the first career-spanning retrospective publication many fans of his have been asking for. We believe that Blinko’s art perfectly gels with the Zagava aesthetic and it has been a joy and a privilege to work on this particular publication, we believe that Zagava reader’s who might not be aware of Nick’s sleeve art for his own band Rudimentary Peni or his one-off art for Coil, the Lovecraft volume he has illustrated or the two previous volumes David Tibet has published under his Coptic Cat imprint, will find much to enjoy in this book. Each of Nick’s creations is like a weird novella in itself, you can at least spend as much time exploring the endlessly detailed work as you would spend on reading and decoding an Aickman strange story.
