Color Plate 39 shows a darker vision of the swamp. Environmental disaster with a side of raining Fortean frogs. It combines a photograph from stock.xchng member Alla Leitus with a painting created by my father, Gus Maier. The frogs are taken from The Complete Encyclopedia Of Illustration compiled by J.G. Heck. "The Atlas Of Dreams" is an ongoing project begun in 1999. Each ‘plate’ is composed of several different images layered to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Tangled white borders erode the edges of the plates. Source images may include - though aren’t limited to: period engravings, filtered stock photos, ArtMatic renders, NASA photos, and the paintings of my father, Gus Maier. Keep an eye out for stray creatures poking and prodding at the fourth wall, and remember to bookmark your place before you close the Atlas and lock it for the night...
