The Doors of Perception
&, Heaven and HellBook - 2009
Among the most profound and influential explorations of mind-expanding psychadelic drugs ever written, here are two complete classic books--The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell--in which Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, reveals the mind's remote frontiers and the unmapped areas of human consciousness. This new edition also features an additional essay, "Drugs That Shape Men's Minds," which is now included for the first time.
"A genuine spiritual quest. ... Extraordinary." -- New York Times

Draperies, as I had now discovered, are much more than devices for the introduction of non-representational forms into naturalistic painting and sculptures. For the artist as for the mescalin taker, draperies are living hieroglyphs that stand in some peculiarly expressive way for the unfathomable mystery of pure being. To what they owe this privileged status, I cannot say. Is it, perhaps, because the forms of folded drapery are so strange and dramatic that they catch the eye and in this way force the miraculous fact of sheer existence upon the attention?
