nobrashfestivity:Charles Dellschau Drawings Charles August Albert Dellschau was an American artist of Prussian birth. He is one of America’s earliest known outsider artists. Twelve of Dellschau’s scrapbooks surfaced in a junkyard in 1967, forty years after his death. From there they found their way into art museums. Then people began deciphering the coded writings he’d left with the pictures. And a strange story emerged. Dellschau had, it seems, belonged to a secret society that’d formed in the California gold-rush region around 1850 – the Sonora Aero Club. One member was supposed to’ve known how to distill a green crystal called Supe from coal. Add water to Supe and you generate a gas that negates gravity. Of course, when that member of the Aero Club died, the recipe for making Supe died with him.But Dellschau’s pictures kept pouring forth. Twelve notebooks survived, and Dellschau’s numbering system suggests that twenty more have been lost. By now, UFO people have adopted Dellschau’s pictures. Some think that mysterious sightings around Oakland, California, in the 1890s were actually airships built by the Sonora Aero Club and carried aloft by Supe.read the amazing story here
