Claremont, CA – August 1, 2015 – Pelekinesis is proud to announce the release of Ian Pyper's Codex Ocularis, an illustrated volume detailing the discovery, exploration, and documentation of a distant planet and the strange creatures that live there.

Codex Ocularis is the Log Book of a lone Astronaut/Psychonaut/Holonaut in a holographic exploration through space and time to an extremely large planet in the distant recesses of an unknown galaxy. Mimetic in character, it has focused its gaze on the Earth and its water and has consequently created weird and wonderful organisms in its vast internal fluid-filled centre.

Codex Ocularis by Ian Pyper will be available March 26, 2016 through Small Press Distribution, Baker & Taylor, Bertrams, directly from the publisher's website, and in fine local bookstores worldwide.

About the author

IAN PYPER was born into a 1950s world of black and white TV and northern English city industrial smog—a world of grey streets and grey people. As a child he yearned for the exciting worlds of American TV shows like Lost in Space and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. His childhood was filled with imagination and fuelled by electric toy trains, plastic Airfix planes, Cowboys and Indians, wooden swords, and long summer days escaping to the seaside. He gained recognition in the late 1980s when his art was termed Future Primitive (paleolithique moderne) by French small press publisher Joe Ryczko in his publication Les Friches de l'Art. His colouring book Bugs of the Future Primitive was released by Pelekinesis in 2013 and he has exhibited in galleries worldwide. His love of the seaside and its beaches, boats, and seagulls continues and he now lives on the south coast of England.
