Hercules: Three Hands Press, 2013. Limited Edition of 150 copies only, hand-numbered. A FINE COPY bound in full black Mohair and marbled end papers. A collaborative effort of The Viatorium Press and Three Hands Press, and in the spirit of furthering the modern tradition of the Magical Book, I am pleased to introduce Joseph Uccello's OCCLITH OMNIFORM 0. Mr. Uccello is an award-winning artist, typographer and printer. This new work contains many essential texts of the Paracelsian School of Alchemy, the whole serves as an animated sourcebook of essential Hermetic philosophy and Natural Magic, vivified through the letterpress-inspired type design, and Uccello's masterful ink and brush drawings. In addition to the lavishly illustrated European alchemical texts, this volume includes an essential lexicon of alchemical terms expressive of the Royal Art of Alchemy since medieval times. Includes an original introduction by Uccello which serves as a portal into this exceptional book. Royal Octavo. (Item ID: X-OCM)
