OPEN THIS BOOK. A breathtaking graphic imagining of the discovery of LSD by Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann. The cartoonist eschews biographical detail in favor of expressionistic illustrations that delight and confound. A startling and inventive tale.

— Jacob


Illustrator, musician and self-described "comic stripper" Brian Blomerth has spent years combining classic underground art styles with his bitingly irreverent visual wit in zines, comics, and album covers. With Brian Blomerth's Bicycle Day, the artist has produced his most ambitious work to date: a historical account of the events of April 19, 1943, when Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann ingested an experimental dose of a new compound known as lysergic acid diethylamide and embarked on the world's first acid trip. Combining an extraordinary true story told in journalistic detail with the artist's gritty, timelessly Technicolor comix style, Brian Blomerth's Bicycle Day is a testament to mind expansion and a stunningly original visual history.
