Somewhere Over the Rainbow: The Art of Neon Park, Last Gasp 2001

Because of his famous record covers for Zappa and Little Feat, among others, I have been aware of Neon Park since childhood, but until I stumbled on a copy of this wonderful book at LA’s iconic book/toystore/art gallery Wacko, I hadn’t realized the breadth of his art, or the depth of his influence. Spawn of the psychedelic daze of the late 60s Bay Area, Neon Park, born Martin Muller in 1940, fell right in with the burgeoning mind expanding culture of the day, and took it just a but farther himself.

From here I’ll simply let his art speak for itself.
