A defining text of the new magical renaissance, Star.Ships addresses the question of who we are now by tracing where we come from, and by drawing out the stories and spirits that have journeyed and evolved with us. The goal is, as Gordon writes, the restoration of context.
We are reposting Peter Grey’s essay on Pomba Gira and Babalon to mark having sold the final hardback copy of Nicholaj De Mattos Frisvold’s Pomba Gira and the Quimbanda of Mbùmba Nzila. Please note, the paperback remains in print.
¶ Scarlet Imprint was founded by Alkistis Dimech and Peter Grey in 2007 with the talismanic publication of 156 copies of The Red Goddess; fired by a vision to create work that would inspire an artistic and intellectual revivification in modern magical practice. We have established ourselves, in the following years, as one of the leading publishers of the contemporary occult, with a progressive catalogue of books on the Western magical tradition, witchcraft, the African Diaspora religions, esoteric poetry, drama & occulture.
Our work is intended to support practising magicians, students of the occult arts, the esoteric community and the fine book arts. Our titles are notable for their erudition and scholarly standards, which are conjoined with the unique insight born of practice and experience. We are committed to presenting material with artistry and the highest standards of craft. All typography and design is done in house, with the aim of unfolding a modern and vital esoteric aesthetic that both manifests the numen of the book and contributes to the tradition of the fine book arts.
Our titles are available in limited standard hardbacks and fine editions, in conjunction with the unlimited Bibliothèque Rouge paperback editions.
