Magical Calendar is a new project by Rik Garrett, contributor to the Hermetic Library visual pool, who co-created with Jane Garrett the Occult Guide site I’ve posted about before. If you want to find out more, contact Rik via the Magical Calendar page, or watch for updates on his blog.
“Inspired by the astounding Calendrier Magique, created by Austin De Croze and Manuel Orazi to document the year in magic for 1897, I am releasing a limited number of specially created prints each month for the year of 2013.
2013 is the perfect year for this project, immediately following the “apocalypse” that has been the topic of much debate. As “apocalypse” means “the lifting of the veil,” I look forward to depicting a post-apocalyptic world of mystery and secret knowledge passed down through the ages.
Images will be composed of photographs that I have taken, retouched via photocollage and other mixed media approaches. Prints will be museum quality archival inkjet reproductions, signed and numbered in very small editions.
I will be releasing information regarding each monthly image on the third Friday of each month, at which point the limited number of prints will be immediately available. Those who have purchased prints in the series previously will have access the the purchase information one day early, in order to assist those attempting to collect the entire year’s worth of images.
Each month’s print will be made available on the second Friday of the previous month. In order to account for the holidays, the January print is planned to be released one week early, on December 7th.
Each print will be 13×19 inches, printed as an archival inkjet print on rag photo paper with no optical brighteners, signed and numbered in very limited editions. The price of each print is planned to be $200 USD.
January’s Lilith print will be limited to a very small edition of only 13. In order to assist those who wish to collect the entire year’s worth of prints, those who purchase any print will have early access to purchase others throughout the year. For example, if you purchase the January print, you will have the ability to purchase the February print one day before the general public.
As an additional bonus, anyone collecting the entire year’s calendar will also receive for free an additional 13th print not available for purchase otherwise.” [via]
