London: Fulgur Limited, 2012. DELUXE EDITION, limited to 88 copies only, numbered and signed by the author. A FINE COPY, bound in quarter morocco and premium cloth boards with front panel vignette blocked in red foil. Marbled end papers and top edge silver gilt, and in matching slipcase, lined, with dust jacket. Small folio. 120 pages. Thirty five plates, some folding, plus 28 vignettes en texte. Ranging from intellectual treatises on sacred geometry, bio-morphism and the symbol of the serpent in Kabbalistic theory and practice, THE SACRIFICIAL UNIVERSE is unlike any other book Fulgur has offered to date. Produced as a lavish small folio with generous margins and a classic typographic style, THE SACRIFICIAL UNIVERSE presents David's key artworks of the last four years as full-page images, with the triptychs and quadriptych offered as folding plates. The complex and evocative iconographic symbolism is also explored through commentaries. And yet THE SACRIFICIAL UNIVERSE is more than a homage to those seventeenth century books of hermetic mysticism. Structured like unto the classic Kabbalistic text Sepher Yetzirah, the work may be approached on three levels (world, year, and soul) to offer the reader a view of Gnostic surrender within a vision of the self-consuming nature of phenomena. The plates are reminiscent of the extraordinary works of Freher, and his marvelous rendering of the Behmenist vision. (Item ID: FUL-UNId)
