Fulgur Ltd Launch Party @ Treadwells Books
Barry Hale's new book: Legion 49
Free, but advance guest list only, from 7 pm
Fulgur invites you to the launch of Barry Hale’s Legion 49. The book is described thus: "[in this] series of short, de-constructionist essays the artist explores traditional methods of evocation and the myths surrounding Beelzebub, before providing an iconographical and sigillic recension of his horde of forty-nine servitors, glimpsed through the protective-symmetry of the paper-cut traditions of old Mexico. Legion 49 is a fusion of styles, influences and approaches, the modern and ancient, direct and indirect, refined and raw: it seeks to capture for a moment that flitting, fleeting, Chaotic gnosis symbolised by the Lord of Flies."
Standard edition will be on sale on the night: Limited to 777 numbered copies. Illustrations, gilt-stamped cloth and dust-jacket. 160pages, 230mm x 175mm. £25.00. You can reserve a launch copy by contacting the shop.
Barry will be there to sign copies and there are rumours even of an impromptu performance that should create a real buzz. Capacity is limited, so be sure to reserve a spot. Places are free but you do need to contact us to be added to the guest list.
