Seeking Faust is a play by the poet Dale Pendell, author of the acclaimed Pharmako trilogy on psychoactive plants, a comedy of 13 scenes in prose, following a verse prologue. The dramatic form is apposite, invoking its origins in the archaic rites of Dionysus, the god of vegetal life, intoxication and revolution. The text is graced with 8 charming pen & ink illustrations by the artist Jennifer Rain Crosby.
Peter Grey will be among the speakers presenting at the Visible College Bournemouth Session. The event will focus on the history of persecution suffered by new faiths and esoteric practices, the history of the modern witchcraft movement, and how we can fight to protect our future and the future of the next generation of pagans and occultists.
¶ Scarlet Imprint was founded in 2007 with the talismanic publication of 156 copies of The Red Goddess. We have established ourselves, in the following years, as one of the leading publishers of the contemporary occult world, with a progressive catalogue of books on the Western magical tradition, witchcraft, the African Diaspora religions, esoteric poetry & occulture.
Our work supports 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 are conjoined with the unique insight born of practice and experience. Furthermore, 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 and digital editions. Email us with the subject line ‘subscribe’ if you wish to receive announcements of forthcoming titles, as well as pre-order of our standard & fine editions.
