Unearthly Expeditions: Mount Analog
Dave Flynn / Rosa Unearthly Goods
“Unearthly Expeditions: Mount Analog” is the first release from a series of fictional, supernatural, metaphysical, intangible, cerebral Explorer’s Club flags from Rosa Unearthly Goods®. It references the imaginary mountain from the French para-surrealist writer René Daumal’s novel, Mount Analogue: A Novel of Symbolically Authentic Non-Euclidean Adventures in Mountain Climbing. Daumal’s novel documents “an expedition undertaken by a group of mountaineers [who] travel to and climb the titular Mount Analogue, an enormous mountain on a surreal continent which is invisible and inaccessible to the outside world, and which can only be perceived by the application of obscure knowledge.”
That which is above, knows what has been below. That which is below, knows not what is above. Knowledge in action.
