Spanish adult performer, director, and all around artist Amarna Miller is adding another dimension to her identity as a uniquely creative mind in the industry with the publication of her first book. Manual de Psiconautica is a gorgeous looking little volume, and will be available from June 12, 2015.
According to information from Miller’s publisher, the book gives the reader an intimate and penetrating look into the artist’s personal and professional journey. Instead of a conventional narrative, Miller’s book is a collection of poetry and photography, all of which bring readers into her personal experiences, almost like literary and artistic espionage, so suggests press information on Psiconautica.
Unfortunately, the book is only available in Spanish – we at BaDoink will be the first to report if a translation becomes available – but it’s 80 pages, so well worth brushing up on the subjunctive tense.
If you happen to be in Madrid the weekend the book is released, Miller will be signing copies of the book at the Feria del Libro de Madrid [Madrid Book Festival] on the Saturday. You’ll be able to find her at stall 46 (Punto y coma) from noon to 2pm, then at stall 165 (Muga) from 7-9pm.
On Friday, the same day as publication, the Aleatorio Bar will be holding a formal presentation in the evening, at 10pm. Illustrator and founder of Revista Mongolia [Mongolia Magazine] Darío Adanti will be presiding over the event, and Miller will be signing and giving lectures. Entrance is free, so if you’re traveling through the Spanish capital, you’ve no excuse not to check it out.
For all those reading in other parts of the world, Psiconautica can be purchased at the low cost of 15 euro via the publisher Lapsus Calami. Based on Miller’s previous work, this book should be nothing short of aesthetically and poetically transcendental, and most likely a highly enjoyable read as well.
