Christmas is coming up, and you definitely need to pamper yourself!
How about an original painting by Trevor Brown, a lithograph by Steffi Grant, one new CD deluxe box by Vanessa Sinclair & Akoustik Timbre Frekuency, and a whole lot of unique artworks? Oh, and the lovely “Debauched” of course!

Carfax Monographs Lithograph
A lithograph based on Steffi Grant's image from her and husband Kenneth Grant's classic book "The Carfax Monographs." Steffi Grant (1923-2019) was a unique British artist who captured the eternal mysteries together with her husband Kenneth (1924-2011). Their work within the "Typhonian" OTO, and also with promoting the creative sorcery and legacy of fellow British artist Austin Osman Spare, is an invaluable cornerstone of contemporary Western occultism. This is the only authorized print by Steffi Grant that has ever been produced. This lithograph was printed in Sweden during 2013, and then signed and numbered in London by the artist. Sheet size 28 x 42 cm. Printed on high quality, archival art paper stock. Signed and numbered in recto by the artist. Limited edition of 31 copies.
Vanessa Sinclair & Akoustik Timbre Frekuency: “The Chapel Is Empty”
A brand new collaboration between British sound sorcerer Akoustik Timbre Frekuency and American artist/poet Vanessa Sinclair takes us into evocative vistas of vibration and revelation. Sinclair’s words and sensual voice sometimes floats on top of ATF’s sea of sounds, and sometimes submerges itself to challenge us from the depths. The magic lies in the words, in the performance and in the stripped honesty of Sinclair’s subconscious contacts. The merging of these two talents creates a listening experience that completely defies times and space; one that is eager to tell you stories and convey emotions that perhaps don’t really exist anywhere else than in the listener's mind…Who’s to say? Who’s to tell? The chapel may be empty, as Sinclair’s poetry suggests, but it’s definitely waiting to be filled again. And this is what it sounds like.
A beastly behemoth 384 pages deluxe hardcover art photo book. During the height of the turned-on 1960s and 70s Occult explosion even the under the counter men’s magazines got in on the act and began a surreal exploration of the haunting netherworld of Witchcraft and Satanism. This monumental art book reveals a world of diabolical smut that was so compelling and obscure that many people today would actually question whether or not the magazines were real or just an elaborate and detailed modern photo editing invention. Well, they are real, and they are spectacular! These magazines are in fact, out there in the world. They are collecting dust in attics, basements, and garages. Hidden away from sight. Unsavory treasures deemed too filthy and then forgotten by their lustful owners. This massive 384 pages deluxe hardcover book is a glimpse into a vast and shocking world that still remains virtually unknown and unexplored. These artifacts come from a bygone era promoting sexual revolution and freedom with overt and unholy occult themes. If you have any issues with hardcore witchcraft and Satanism, body hair or nudity, don’t pick this release up and quickly get it out of your sight, and forget everything we've mentioned. Just remember life's too short to take everything so seriously. Flesh is beautiful. It’s time to descend into the infernal witches’ cauldron and deep down into the hellish pit for a real Black Mass.
