3 years ago, the first 3 parts of Brian Howell’s intriguing novel about the Dutch painter Jan Torrentius (1589 – 1644) were published as “The Stream and the Torrent”.

Last year the Dutch filmmaker Maarten de Kroon finished his acclaimed documentary about this controversial painter and his only surviving mysterious masterpiece. (https://vimeo.com/214142503)

We finally offer the long-awaited 3 new parts of Brian’s book: “The Curious Case of Jan Torrentius”!

These are available in 2 versions:
New (and of course old) readers will be able to acquire all 6 parts in 6 single hardcover books, presented in a very attractive illustrated slipcase, including a TOC signed by the Author.
Price for the complete set, 6 slipcased hardcover books, limited to 52 sets only, is 128 Euro plus 7 Euro for trackable worldwide airmail shipping.

Those who bought “Volume 1” can order the 3 new parts only and since these come in the same format as “The Stream and the Torrent” they neatly fit together into the beautiful slipcase which includes a TOC signed by the Author.
Price for the new 3 slipcased hardcover books is 64 Euro plus 6 Euro for trackable worldwide airmail shipping.

“In 1629, this painter, feted in the highest social and artistic circles of Hague society for his unusual ability to depict real objects with uncommon accuracy, along with being suspected of belonging to, if not being the head of, a secret society known as the Rosy Cross, is languishing in prison, having been found guilty of atheism, blasphemy, and heresy.” — Brian Howell

“Stanisłav Szukalski (13 December 1893 – 19 May 1987) was a Polish-born painter and sculptor who became a part of the Chicago Renaissance. He also developed the pseudoscientific-historical theory of Zermatism, positing that all human culture was derived from post-deluge Easter Island.” (Wikipedia)

Ernst Fuchs, one of the founders of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, wrote 20 years ago:

“Szukalski’s work stands up overwhelmingly next to that of the greatest masters of all styles and cultures.” When Fuchs saw Szukalski’s remarkable sketchbooks, he exclaimed that these should be published one day. Well, his wish is our command!

A major US network will air a feature-length documentary about this outstanding artist towards the end of the year, produced by a very prominent Hollywood personality.

The introduction to the sketchbook has been penned by weirdo oddball genius Charles Schneider, connoisseur of all things Szukalski.

We have compiled a facsimile of his most remarkable sketches from his 1924 diary plus some very personal and highly erotically charged and unseen drawings from his correspondence and vintage photos. The book will be bound in red leatherette, blocked in gold and printed on fine age-toned art paper.

Price for this unique hardcover book is 49 Euro plus 7 Euro for trackable worldwide airmail shipping.
