Champagne Book Launch: The Red Goddess
The History of Babalon, the Holy Whore
Hosted by Scarlet Imprint
Free, but advance booking required to be added to the guest list
Scarlet Imprint cordially invite you to the launch of The Red Goddess.
We will be meeting at the famous Atlantis Bookshop in Museum Street at midday and then proceeding to the British Museum for a reading at the John Dee exhibit.
It is fitting that we can evoke BABALON in the presence of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth and the shewstone of Dr Dee.
Then we will return to Atlantis bookshop for blood red champagne cocktails.
We have deliberately chosen this time, date and location, and look forward to seeing you there.
Our launch parties attract the best of London and England’s occultists and have a reputation for being lively events with ample opportunity to discuss, debate and socialise.
Please reserve your place by mailing Atlantis on email@example.com or calling them on 020 7405 2120
If you are a visitor to London, directions to Museum street can be found on the Atlantis Bookshop website, here
Full details on the Solstice edition of The Red Goddess below:
Scarlet Imprint are delighted to announce the publication of: The Red Goddess for midday Summer Solstice June 21.
This title is now available for you to order.
The Red Goddess is an octavo book of 260pp, printed throughout in red and black ink, and with four luscious plates.
The standard edition is strikingly bound in white book cloth, scarlet endpapers, and embossed with the seven pointed star of BABALON. Each and every book is perfumed and consecrated.
It is being prepared in a strictly limited and hand-numbered edition of seven hundred and seventy-seven copies.
A copy can be yours for thirty-seven English pounds plus postage.
In addition, 49 devotee copies of The Red Goddess are being quarter bound in black moroccan goat and finished in scarlet silk with hand marbled endpapers. These fine books will be bound by Brian Settle. Each one a work of art and rare beauty in a world of mass production. We will only sell these direct to individuals who contact us and explain why they wish to own a copy, a necessary step given the speculators who seek to profit from our work.
These are magickal books, for a magickal purpose, and that is their value.
We do accept installments, as we want our books to reach the right people.
The devotee copies will each cost an hundred and fifty six English pounds plus secure delivery.
The Red Goddess is an ecstatic journey through the unheard history of BABALON, from Revelations back through the Ishtar Gate and forward into a living modern magickal current.
This is an explicit and challenging vision of a very modern Goddess coming into power. This is more than a history, it is a passionate account of living magick and the transcendent power of Love.
The epic sweep of the text takes us from Babylon to Jerusalem to Rome, and onwards to Apocalypse.
It looks at the angelic work of renaissance mage John Dee.
It lays bare the excesses of Aleister Crowley, and unlocks the secrets of Waratah Blossoms.
It explains the immolation of the Californian antichrist-superstar Jack Parsons and his relationship with Scientology founder L.Ron Hubbard.
This is the missing history of the Holy Whore.
Thirteen essays conclude the book on subjects including: roses, mirror magick, BDSM, aphrodisiac drugs, the information age, love vs lust, and the meaning of apocalypse.
Intelligent and balanced reviews for the previous edition from both readers and people of standing in the occult community can be found at www.scarletimprint.com
Those working with Ishtar, Inanna, Lilith, Kali, Sekhmet, Bast, Freya, Pomba Gira, Erzulie, witchcraft, Tantra, sacred sex and ritual transgression will find much here to intrigue, inspire and challenge them.
The Red Goddess is suitable for anyone with blood in their veins, regardless of tradition, background or experience.
It is a Love story.
