GENTLEMEN, MADMEN, THINGS THAT ARE NOT MEN
by D. VENATRIX

Wolves in human clothing
Arise from underneath
They won't get their hands bloody
Only their teeth

So begins this dark, compelling book documenting an uncanny world and the elegant but perilous folk who dwell there. Some might call them fairies, some might call them monsters. They look like gentlemen but they are anything but gentle. They live underground, but they prowl our streets. Every shadow may hide a doorway into their topsy-turvy, twilight land.

Original retro-look instant photos of liminal objects and places are juxtaposed with unique vintage portraits of striking but often strange men (and a few ladies), interspersed with rhyming poetry evoking an otherworldly and subtly sinister atmosphere.

There is also a hidden spell within the poems for you to discover, a reward for close attention.

INSIDE YOU WILL FIND:

- 39 instant photographs (b&w and color) taken with a vintage Polaroid Sun600 camera
- 26 antique cabinet cards, photographs and RPPCs from the 1890's through 1940's (sepia and b&w), some of which have been embellished with walnut ink
- 26 short poems and cantrips to send shivers down your spine

Wow. Amazing oracle deck! I choose the 'bag and die' option and I'm very happy that I did because the bag is made of a sturdy material so I know it will last a long time. Also, the print, makes me want to have several more of these bags; and the die - a cute little thing! I only received my package an hour ago so I haven't had time to read the book but I took in a few pages and I can tell that it's a great companion to the cards. As for the cards, they're a perfect fit for my hands..not too large or too small, and they feel really nice. As I was looking through them, I knew I had a made a good decision in purchasing this deck - really great stuff!

The cutest! And so much fun! Great for beginners or for an evening with gfs! But I am sure that you can go much deeper with your cards! Love my purchase!

What do you seek in divination? If light on the practicalities of the day, the week, the month, you'll find that here, clear as day. If a journey deep below, spoken in the fairy tale language you learnt when a journeying child, opening your eyes, your understanding, your soul to all that lives in the Holy Dark, you will find that here, too. So far I've read among other things for a doctor's appointment, what I needed to see in a difficulty with a very dear friend, and where I stand in my life journey and what lies around me, hidden, and what shines to lead me on. This Oracle is an absolute wonder. As it would be, given how it is rooted and the fruit it bears. Don't hesitate if you hear a song. These cards are singing for you.
