About the Book
In January 2009, Otto Rapp started a Private Network of Visionary Artists on the Ning Platform with a handful of friends. Since then, the Membership has steadily grown and includes some of the very best Visionary Artists in the Universe.
Many of these artists had been friends for decades, others are new to the fold.
This Yearbook is a celebration of the cooperative spirit of these Artists and their accomplishments.
Over 400 pictures and illustrations, with essays by De Es Schwertberger, Sigrid Nepelius, Prof. Philip Rubinov-Jacobson, Helena Nelson-Reed and Delvin Solkinson, as well as numerous memorable quotes by our members.
A special section of 3 blank pages at the end of the book was designed to collect signatures: bring the book to the next exhibition of our artists to have it signed.

Born in Austria, I lived and worked for 4 decades in Canada where I also studied art, graduating with great distinction from the University of Lethbridge. I recently returned to my roots in Vienna and am now working in my studio at the Kunstquartier Wien. ABOUT MY WORKS "These are universal archetypes that are found deep inside a collective subconscious. While seemingly alien and strange, they are also strangely familiar. I take the viewer into an area that they had entered before only in another existence, or in dreams. It is a 'method in this madness' but everything is created by exclusion of conscious leadership. The work is growing seemingly by itself, like ice flowers on a windowpane."
