I did a review as part of #HallowZine

It was super great, thanks for doing it ;D

Wowzer, love that art! :O

Would it be possible to please get a singles layout version of the PDF, rather than spreads?

Thanks for your kind words... I'm afraid my layout buddy is lost in the wilderness, but if he pops up someday will ask him about it ;D


When I saw the art for this, I literally jerked my head backwards in impressed reaction! So cool looking. I can't wait to read it. 

Thanks for such an enormous compliment, hope you find it fun and inspiring once you read it ;D

LOVED it. (I waited on the physical copy to read it.) I just released a review of it on my garage style podcast - Talking Codex R, an unusual bestiary/setting with a kaleidoscopic totalitarian vibe.

So awesome, thanks for sharing your thoughts about it, and yes, you are completely correct about our inspiration: Fantastic Planet or the work of surrealist painter Remedios Varo are there, or works like the cryptic Codex Seraphinianus or the Voynich Manuscript were on the back of our heads, with some Polish movie posters and more tasty stuff. Thanks so much for your time and your kind words, Ray ;D
