Item #30844 THE SACRIFICIAL UNIVERSE. David Chaim Smith.


London: Fulgur Limited, 2012. First edition. Limited to 892 copies, 800 in this format; 13.5" x 9.5"; 117 pages. Item #30844

Hardbound in fine condition in very good dust jacket.

Thirty five plates, some folding, plus 28 vignettes en texte. Produced as a lavish small folio with generous margins and a classic typographic style, THE SACRIFICIAL UNIVERSE presents David's key artworks of the last four years as full-page images, with the triptychs and quadriptych offered as folding plates. The complex and evocative iconographic symbolism is also explored through commentaries. Structured like unto the classic Kabbalistic text, "Sepher Yetzirah", the work may be approached on three levels (world, year, and soul) to offer the reader a view of Gnostic surrender within a vision of the self-consuming nature of phenomena. Includes five large folding triptychs and a quadriptych, and 28 vignettes en texte.

Price: $400.00
