The Magic Box: A Whimsical Vintage Children’s Book for Grownups About Life, Death, and How To Be More Alive Every Day

“This book was written outside the cemetery wall … in memory of life, the wonder & pain of it & the unspeakable worthwhileness of every second of it.”

“Death is our friend,” wrote Rilke in abeautiful 1923 letter“precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence with all that is here, that is natural, that is love.” And yet most of us spend our days dreading this inevitable and natural conclusion to the human journey, casting death as life’s ultimate and most hateful antagonist — a fear that invariably contracts our aliveness.

A grownup counterpart to the most intelligent and imaginative children’s books about making sense of death, this vintage gem is part of a marvelous limited-edition set by Pintauro and Laliberté called The Rainbow Box — a collection of four such psychedelic art books, one for each season of the year: this one for autumn, The Peace Box for winter, The Rabbit Box for spring, and A Box of Sun for summer.

The Magic Box presents a series of short, vitalizing meditations on mortality, illustrated with beautiful typographic art and collage incorporating Victorian engravings reminiscent of Donald Barthelme’s only children’s book. The back cover captures Pintauro’s charming tone of earnest, uncynical irreverence:

this book will scare you if you are stupid

if you are not stupid it will make you happy

Stupidity aside, if you are sensitive and wholehearted, it will most definitely make you rapturous with delight — here is a peek inside:

Tybetańska Joga Snu i Śnienia - Tenzin Wangyal Rinpocze

(PDF, 1.16 MB)
"Człowiek śpi codziennie. Dlaczego nie robić tego świadomie, tak by sen miał na nas korzystny wpływ? Tybetańska joga snu i śnienia zawiera dokładne instrukcje pokazujące, jak za dnia wpłynąć na jakość snu i sprawić, żeby stał się on jeszcze jednym elementem prowadzącym do wyzwolenia. Europejczycy nie doceniają potęgi snu, nie wiedzą, że drzemie w nich moc, która potrafi odmienić życie."

Originally published in 2010 ‘Psychedelic – Optical and Visionary Art since the 1960s’ is a visual history of the ‘psychedelic sensibility.’ Three essays, by the book’s editor David S. Rubin, Robert C. Morgan and Daniel Pinchbeck, introduce and frame the diverse selection of paintings, mixed-media and new media works, within a succinct cultural perspective.
