"Vudu Cartography" is a work, previously unpublished, from the school of Michael Bertiaux, and includes more than 130 new vudu images by the artist, all printed in full color on archival paper. The first entirely new book by Michael Bertiaux for more than 20 years. Vudu Cartography explores the mysteries of Vudu through chants, oracles, seances and a symbolic system of images – all connected by a descriptive narrative. Drawn from his experiences in Haiti, Bertiaux’s own evocative voudon ‘art brut’ images create a map for those regions of ‘invisible power’, giving the reader access to the ‘mysteries and hiddenesses of an exotic theology, with its spiritist twists and turns and esoteric spaces'. Appears as new, thus near Fine in near Fine dust jacket. Out-of-print. Item #67572
