Nog A Dod: Prehistoric Canadian Psychedooolia

Nog A Dod is a landmark in Canadian Oddball Art Publishing. It documents nearly a decade of work by a loosely affiliated group of primarily Vancouver artists who draw with and about each other. Like their contemporaries and friends in the Royal Art Lodge, they work on each other's drawings, create small run books and ephemera, and collaborate so closely that it is sometimes difficult to tell where one begins and another ends. Their work falls somewhere between children's book art, comics, psychedelia and fine

art. It is loose, expressive, and unpredictable. Nog A Dod focuses on some of their greatest self-published achievements: The Book Of Sweden, Bucktooth Magnifying Glass, Ultra Sommy, Strawbaby, Flip Flop Prophets, Volvo Rollbars, Knoze Clippah, Pee On The Owl, Long Time Journey and many more. And while many of these artists are widely popular in their native city, few have seen the greater extent of their work. Nog A Dod is the first book to document this vibrant scene, and should be of interest to anyone who has been seduced by their fellow "doodlers" Marcel Dzama and Paper Rad. Editor and designer Marc Bell is at the forefront of this movement and this book attempts to define and give shape to it. Bell has gone to great lengths to secure quality reproductions of the original bookworks, in many cases far superior to the original photocopied versions. 

The book documents hundreds of unique mini-books by artists including Bell, Peter Thompson, Jason McLean, Amy Lockhart, Owen Plummer, Tommy Lacroix, S.P. Ehman, Scott Evans, Julie Voyce and Mark Connery.

Marc Bell lives in Vancouver, BC where he divides his time between his own cartoony Fine Artwork and more recently his editing of otherwise obscure material. In addition to Nog A Dod, Marc is guest editing sections of the upcoming "Japanada" issue of the Ganzfeld, including a long overdue survey of Mark Connery's brilliant Rudy comics. His own recent print projects include The Hobbit with Peter Thompson (Picturebox Inc) and Pile Of Bacon, a selection of drawings prepared for Kramer's Ergot 6 (Buenaventura Press). Marc is represented by the Adam Baumgold Gallery in NY.

288 pages, color and b/w illustrations. 2006.
