Mad as Bad Tornado

Mad as a Bad Tornado, zine by Jean McEwan

Mad as Bad Tornado is a contributions-based zine dedicated to visionary artist Henry Darger I curated in 2011.

Henry Joseph Darger (1892 – 1973) was a reclusive American writer and artist. He has become famous for his posthumously discovered 15,145-page, single-spaced fantasy manuscript called ‘The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused …by the Child Slave Rebellion’, along with several hundred drawings and watercolor paintings illustrating the story. Darger is regarded as one of the most significant self-taught artists of the 20th century.
Featuring photography, drawing, collage, sound, poetry, and fiction and letter writing from a range of UK and international artists and writers, Mad as a Bad Tornado is a 28 page full colour hand-made zine, printed in a limited edition of 50 only,
containing an eclectic range of responses to the life and work of this complex and enigmatic artist.

 Mad as a Bad Tornado has sold out via mail order. There are two remaining copies available at AyeAye Books, CCA in Glasgow
