Bibliophile Porn

For me, as an admitted bibliophile and collector of beautiful tomes, today was a beautiful day. With today's mail I received not one, not two, but THREE new books which I've been eagerly awaiting. Oh, and with them came my author's copy of the Fine Edition of Crossed Keys. 

Today's treasure trove included two titles from my fellow Scarlet Imprint Alumnus, Nicholaj De Mattos Frisvold, Pomba Gira and Palo Mayombe, as well as The Complete Picatrix, Liber Atratus Edition by Christopher Warnock and John Michael Greer.



And did I mention the Fine Edition of Crossed Keys? When I first saw the photos Scarlet Imprint posted of this museum-grade tome I commented that it was by far the most beautiful book I had ever seen. Well, I am sorry to have to retract that initial assumption, but it was incorrect. The truth is it is far more amazing than that. And I'm not just saying that because I wrote it. This, however, will not be a surprise to anyone who is familiar with Peter and Alkistis' work, and I am proud to congratulate them on having been recognized not only by the occult community, but by the British Book Design and Production community as a whole.
