THE LAND OF BLUE
"Sticking his foot out of infinity... he saw he was still orange as orange could be!"
Peter Max's colorful and cosmic art style perfectly encapsulates the visual psychedelia of the 1960s and '70s. His illustrations both contrast with and compliment the flowing patterns of Douglas Cockerell and Son's marbled designs, their bold, repetitive shapes acting as perfect backgrounds for Max's fantastical figures. A particularly attractive melding of traditional book aesthetics with contemporary art.
