A reminder that we have two upcoming launch parties for Jake Stratton-Kent’s Testament of Cyprian the Mage.
The first is this Saturday, March 1 2014 starting at 7pm at the world famous Atlantis Bookshop on Museum Street London. The wine will inevitably be flowing. If you would like to attend, please send an rsvp to email@example.com
We are delighted by the ongoing support that Atlantis have offered to Scarlet Imprint, and the denizens of occult London and farther afield who choose to come and partake in the celebrations with us.
If you have never attended a launch, please don’t be shy, it is a relaxed atmosphere in which to socialise, and we are always welcoming to new faces. Please introduce yourselves to us.
A second launch party will occur on the eve before The Occult Conference in Glastonbury (#sefcon) on Friday March 21 at Labyrinth Books, undoubtedly the best bookshop in the vale of Avalon. Details of these and other events are on our website here:http://www.scarletimprint.com/events.htm
Jake will of course be in attendance at both events signing books.
These are a brace of books very much worth celebrating, making Jake Stratton Kent arguably the most important magician of his generation. He has rendered an incredible service to the spirits, our understanding of magical history and the future direction of our tradition. Goetia has been restored to the status that it deserves.
"The Red Dragon & Goat of the Arte". Pen and ink on nostalgia paper, 2013. Part of Volume I of II of The Testament of Cyprian the Mage by Jake Stratton-Kent.
"I turned several leaves upon one I found perfectly drawn a Dragon and a goat calmly laying together. The goat had drawn upon its knees hieroglyphics that read Arte. As I looked upon this it seemed both strange and yet familiar: but a still greater surprise was awaiting me. The dragon and the goat became enlivened, moving their eyes and increasing in size. Finally, leaving the book, they were prostrated before me; each speaking these words in a human voice: I am your servant, command and you will be obeyed.”
