Signed Limited edition photograph, “Beautiful Evil.” Limited to only 15 Prints.
This 12″ x 18″ photograph is my largest print. It features two of the first explicitly diabolic mass market grimoires, The Grimoire of Honorius and The Grimorium Verum (ca. 1830). Both bound in matching full leather bindings and small enough to fit in a jacket pocket or behind a beam in the attic, “Its hard to find a word for beautiful and evil at the same time but your looking at it!” Both were Printed during the Bibliothèque bleue period by Simon Blocquel who is notorious for beautiful hand colored editions. The aspect ratio and size of the print makes it all the more impactful.
Book right: Les Veritables Clavicules de Salomon Siuvies du Papillon Vert, A Memphis, chez Alibeck l’Égyptien (ca. 1830)
Book Left: Le Grimoire du Pape Honorius avec un Recueil des plus Rares Secrets (ca. 1830)
