Solve. A Graphic Grimoire.
London: Fulgur Limited, 2012. First edition Hardcover. Quarto. 80 pages. Bound in a premium black cloth lettered in white, with artistic embellishments in blind. Edition limited to 800 hand-numbered copies. The third volume in the Tela Quadrivum series following "Coagula". Solve takes the reader further into the alchemical process begun in Orryelle's previous volume for Fulgur. Says the author/artist: "SOLVE dissolves the gold distilled in COAGULA, tears apart our egos, dismembers our bodies and hurls any conceptions of perfection back into the primal void. Herein lies death, destruction, and the Prima Materia, the base matter, the Al Khem – the fertile black soil of decomposing forms, the compost for new growth. In an exploration of the Nigredo, or Blackening phase, of Alchemy, the concepts of Black Magic are re-examined in this ThanatErotic tome of the backward winding path; from the darkness of the womb to the darkness of the tomb…" NEW book.
