Selections from the Dream Manual is a serendipitous work of art combining text,
symbols, collage, and painting. It is intended as something that can be enjoyed
for its own sake, but it was produced using magical techniques and can be used
for magical purposes. That is to say that the authors used techniques common to
many writers, artists, magicians, and mystics. The Dream Manual is the handbook
of regulations and procedures for the employees of the Ministry of Dreams, an
imaginary bureaucracy overseeing all manufacture, transportation, and commerce
in dreams and visions.
