Description

RED ROCK, BLACK SUN was originally created as a unique book-and- wooden-sculpture hybrid conceived and produced by artist and author Will Cloughley in collaboration with sculptor David Dion. When these two friends met they realized they shared a lifelong fascination with the mysterious red rock canyon lands of the American Southwest which had inspired them to artistic expression in very different mediums.

David's sculpture captures the sensuous feminine curves of water-carved rock and abstracts them into the essence of the canyon caught in wood. The outward form of the sculpture also is meant to suggest a mastaba, a form of ancient Egyptian tomb which preceded the pyramids. Its scale might also suggest a container for a holy relic. The sculpture opens to reveal the book nested into a receptacle in the base. But the real container of the mysteries for both of these artists are the canyon lands themselves with their book-like layers of fossil records.

The book block of reduced and re-worked drawings with text on heavy, acid-free art paper were prepared by Will Cloughley and bound into a wooden book cover to match the sculpture by veteran book craftsman, Howard Munson.

Artist Curtis Schreier contributed design ideas for the sculpture and performed elegant work with the router to carve the book receptacle and the hinges.

The book -- now available as a digitally printed edition -- is a philosophical walkabout through a sacred landscape captured in 30 plates of stylized, mixed-media color drawings of the geologic wonders of the desert in which Will's doppelganger appears as silhouette man who makes contact with the spirits of the canyon and confronts the possibility of a paradigm shift in consciousness.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
