Description

The production of the hardcover straddles the line between a fine and deluxe edition, with the first print run limited to 300 copies. This is a smaller book at 129 x 198mm but its pages are powerful. Text has been printed on Munken Pure white 100gsm paper, and the book itself is a sewn bound hardback covered in Suedel Luxe Alaska, with printed marbled endpapers, white head and tail bands, and silver foiling on the front and spine. The cover artwork was provided by S. Aldarnay to Dr Cummin’s specifications. Book is in new unread condition.

From the publisher:

Nazarth is a treasurehouse of geomantic incantations. Its nineteen keys were received and wrought through a combination of spirit communications, dream incubation, ritual cut-up, and judicious co-editing alongside tutelary shades and attendant spirits.

This Angelical psalter offers prayers for opening and closing rituals of geomantic divination, as well as for clearing the potentially dangerous miasmas of “halted” shield charts, and presents calls for directly working with the spirits, virtues, and materia of each of the Sixteen Figures of Renaissance European geomancy – to remediate deleterious conditions, transmute obstacles, stir and direct spirits, and galvanise blessings.

It offers the enterprising diviner-sorcerer resources to explore the Adamical roots of the so-called Enochian language, as well as imagery and spiritual landscapes to engage with the oracle of geomancy through more visionary lenses. It also presents an approach to Angelical charms for practical sorcery, spiritwork, and spellcraft that welcome further experimentation and individuation by practitioners.

“This new offering from Al Cummins and Hadean Press, titled Nazarth, is a series of poems centered around geomantic images, but extended in more practical, magical, and mystical directions. Dr. Cummins does this using the “Angelical speech” recorded by Dr. John Dee in 1583 during his experiments with angelic communication. Thus he celebrates traditional geomancy alongside the Enochian revelations, merging and transforming them in important ways. I believe his approach can help harness the unfamiliar to induce subconscious vigilance, allowing us to experience the Wondrous by countering our tendency to go into auto-pilot mode when surrounded by the familiar.”
