London: Fulgur Limited, 2018. DeLuxe Edition of 35 Copies of which this number 14. Item #17709
Small bump to one corner of solander case; else, A FINE COPY, bound in beveled full limp Vellum with ties, custom textured end papers, and laid into a fleece lined black silk clamshell case with gilt titles. Each copy is hand numbered, signed and dated by Mr. Bransford, who also provides an original Stave drawing, for each numbered copy of which there are only thirty five. Thirty-nine full page color plates of the spells [staves, sigils] of which I found the Moon Ritual section to be very intriguing, particularly those representing the Full Moon in the Signs. Icelandic folk magic and magical texts -- so-called low and high magic -- combine as sources and inspiration for this series of works by Jesse Bransford. Includes Robert J. Wallis's keen essay, "I Know Those Spells': Staves for the Sayings of the High Ones." 120 pages. 4to.
