A Scribe Should Know How To Make Books
I've been devoted to the Egyptian crocodile god Sobek for over a decade now. I've run a website in various forms, and on various hosts, known as Per Sebek, since 2004, devoted to Him and my practice. I've spent a long time sharing my experiences and other information about Him, as a service to the wider community. I've made rituals and prayers available to others, to help them connect to Him better.
I came very reluctantly to priestly work. It wasn't something I sought out. Tending to open statues all day just wasn't my thing, but I wasn't aware of any other form of priestly service for a long time.
But I've always wanted to be a scribe. I've been fascinated with calligraphy and hieroglyphs for most of my life, and while my knowledge of the Egyptian language isn't great, I still love it. Languages are something I enjoy playing with.
Runes, then, took a long time to grok for me. My first exposure to them, back when I was a baby Pagan, didn't go well at all. I still don't know what was wrong, but the rune set I bought hated me, and I passed it on to someone else many years ago. So I was reluctant to pick them up again, convinced that they would never work for me in the same way that Tarot does. But time, and circumstance, found me getting to know Woden, and the Saxon runes, well, they finally opened up the runes to me, and I find them the most intuitively natural way to divine now. I made my own set of Saxon runes, partly because they are so hard to buy, but also because it was an act of devotion to Woden. Every set of runes I make are dedicated to Him, and while they are only made of clay, they are worth the effort, and work brilliantly.
I'm a writer, have been since I was 12, and the joy I found in writing stories extended, eventually, to writing fiction and myths for Sobek. Gods had always turned up in my work in one form or another, from magical stories of hidden lands to alternate histories and time travel. The gods had always been there. To take it to another level, and begin writing serious myths for Sobek was what brought me into His service as a scribe, and priest. It is what I have done for Him for a few years now.
I've been making prayer beads for the gods for a long time. I liked having something to hold while I did ritual, and once I found a good place to buy gemstone beads that wasn't going to cost me the earth, I started making more, now that I could buy all kinds of different beads. I find them useful for praying, and doing devotionals with, and they can also be used to decorate statues.
The leap to bookmaking came in a strange sort of way. It's one of those things I've always been fascinated with, and I stumbled across a few tutorials on youtube, which I watched purely out of fascination. It took a long time to feel like it was something I could actually do, and do well. A scribe ought to know how to make books, after all, or so Sobek told me once. And so, once I found a coptic stitch tutorial that made sense to me, I decided to have a go, and see if I could do it.
The results were pretty good. That first book is still being used as my ritual book. And after more practice, and more books, I finally felt ready to take it on as something I could sell, since I seemed to be somewhat competent at it. Painting on designs to the covers also seemed to be something I could do, so I saw no reason not to offer this service to the wider community, to assist those looking for beautiful ritual books dedicated to their gods.
My life is devoted to the Egyptian god Sobek, and I scribe for Him, writing myths and making books, as well as other devotional items. He brings me joy, and when I make things for Him, I share His joy, and wish to bring that passion to the world.
The shop, at the moment, is a part-time business, set up for the Egyptian crocodile God Sobek, who I've been devoted to for over a decade now. I work as His scribe and priest, and this business has been set up at His behest as a service to Pagans, polytheists and like-minded people.
