Publisher   London Fulgur Limited 2012

Seller ID   000014

Folio in charcoal gray cloth with titles blocked in red on the spine strip. The largest book Fulgur has produced to date. Printed with wide margins in a classic typographic style, with 6 foldout plates that contain 5 triptychs and 1 quadriptych. Blurb: ''The Sacrificial Universe presents David Chaim Smith's key artworks for the last four years as full-page images. The complex and evocative iconographic symbolism is also explored through commentary & textual illustrations that runs throughout. The Sacrificial Universe is more than an homage to 17th century books on Hermetic mysticism. Structured according to the classic Kabbalistic text Sefer Yetzirah and heavily influenced by the author's work with the medieval mystical text The Fountain of Wisdom. The images delineate various aspects of mystical aspiration and realization and may be approached on three levels (World, Year, & Soul) to offer the reader a view of 'gnosemic' surrender within a vision of the self-consuming nature of phenomena." Limited to 800 copies.
