ATUA - ed. David Beth (signed launch copy)
This handsome volume presents the essays, art and exploratory writing of members of La Societe Voudon Gnostique, a group centred around David Beth which derives its inspiration from the great synthesising artist-mage, Michael Bertiaux, who was Beth's mentor. Contributors were members of the society, and include Shannon Esmeralda, Jessica Grote, Peter Dyde, Roberto Migliussi, Dolorosa, Orryelle Defenestrate Bascule, Craig Wiliams, and more.
Colour illustrations throughout show the immense vistual artistry of the group as well as their writing. This book is emblematic of the creative epiphany of the European occult art scene centred around Fulgur ca. 2010-2012.
London: Fulgur Press. 2011. Limited Edition, one of Eight Hundred and Eight copies. 198 pages.
Volume and condition. Launch copy. Original black cloth titled in red to the spine and embossed with a skull symbol to the front board. A virtually spotless copy, with the exception of very light pencil annontations by the previous owner, who was clearly very close to the group or in it. Very minor wear to the extremities, in an equally clean, sharp dustwrapper. Signed by the editor and two contributors to the front flyleaf, with an accompanying Treadwell's stamp as verification.
