Brion Gysin's Dream Machine

Thinking about making another dream machine. I made one years ago from plans in the first Rapid Eyebook and it seemed to work fairly well. There's plans around the internet but I'd recommend this site for a general introduction to the dream machine and Brion Gysin as an artist and poet (though his novels were a bit dodgy to be fair...he was much more of a theorist than a writer...no wonder cut-ups were his idea).

If you know of a good site / book containing his paintings/drawings I'd love to know because the bits I've seen have been very low quality images though the paintings themselves look like they'd be fantastic at higher resolutions... better still, does anyone actually own an original?
