Emil Petaja, a lifelong friend and collector of Hannes Bok, founded the Bokanalia Foundation in 1967, three years after Bok's death.

According to a published statement, the foundation was set up "with the help and encouragement of Harold Taves of Seattle and Ray Bradbury of Los Angeles and the Golden Gate Futurians of San Francisco."

The avowed intention of Bokanalia is to keep the great imaginative art of Hannes Bok from slipping into oblivion, and to make new (better than pulp) prints available to his many admirers all over the world.

Between 1967 and 1970, Petaja published three portfolios of Bok's art.
