For centuries humankind has had a sublime relationship with hallucinogenic mushrooms. Summed up by the reverent name given by the Aztecs, teonanactl (or 'flesh of the Gods'), they have played a mysterious role in human experience, thanks to their psychoactive chemicals that shift and modify the human mind. Arik Moonhawk Roper's exquisite painted portraits of magic mushrooms capture their powerful auras, adding to a tradition of 'shroom art that stretches back more than 400 years. "Mushroom Magick" illustrates more than 90 of the known hallucinogenic species from around the world, with an emphasis on the genus Psilocybe and accompanies them with information about their habitats, psychoactive powers and role in human cultures. Erik Davis and Daniel Pinchbeck provide background and testimony in elegant essays. This beautifully designed and profusely illustrated mushroom bible will appeal to nature lovers, mushroom hunters and enthusiasts of all things psychedelic.

He moved into more diverse areas of poster design, graphic illustration and animation. His work ranges from black-and-white illustration to rich abstract psychedelic works and landscapes that often seem to exist in their own universe.

His essays on topics relating to media arts and spirituality in the postmodern world have appeared in numerous books and he has contributed articles and essays to a wide variety of publications, including Wired, Bookforum, The Wire and ArtByte. Daniel Pinchbeck is the author of Breaking Open the Head: A Psychedelic Journey into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism (2002) and 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl (2006). He advocates the use of psychedelic substances such as LSD, Psilocybin mushrooms and peyote for enriching people's intellectual, psychological and spiritual beliefs through the psychedelic experience.
