Heidelberg Castle

In the 17th century the majestic Renaissance palace was called “8th wonder of the world”. It was destroyed by the French during the Nine Years’ War. In addition it was struck by lightning twice and burnt down in large parts. Left were the ruins of the once majestic Renaissance facades. In the 19th century the remains of the building regained recognition and became an epitome of the Romantic movement. Pictured above is the Ottheinrichsbau, one of the first Renaissance buildings and the first Renaissance building north of the alps.

A preview of what I am working on: some of you may already have spotted the 3rd edition of my plant inspired sigil card set on the website. I am doing alltogether 15 boxes for the Autumn Equinox, 5 of which have already been sold. The difference between this edition and the former is none but the wrapping paper on the slip-case, which is a beautiful black to green peacock marble paper. The content remains the same:
45 cards with plant sigils printed black on heavy paper vergé, numbered on the back
4 colored cards with my ‘soul-paintings’
numbered edition-specific title card
list with names of corresponding herbs
introduction to the cards
All cards are hand-numbered on the back. With the help of a list you find the name of the corresponding herb for each card. There is no prescribed method of laying the cards. Possible ways of interpreting and laying them are outlined in the introduction that comes with each set.
The first time I presented these sigil cards to a live audience was at the London Magical Arte event in March 2014. The cards were passed around, single motifs were discussed and became the basis for inspired conversation. At the time I had only printed the cards but not yet made a nice packaging for them. Later I made slipcases with paper from my local bookbinder. Thus far two smaller editions have been done for the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, now followed by this 3rd edition of 15 for the Autumn Equinox.
Price: still 31 Euro + shipping
Offcial sale date is September 22, but I am already taking pre-orders.
