Mayimbe spreads her wings

The fine bound Mayimbe edition of Palo Mayombe-The Garden of Blood and Bones by Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold is here.

Mayimbe is the vulture, whose brooding presence conceals one of the central mysteries of the cult.
It is brought to life clad in a quarter-binding of handboarded straight grain black goatskin which results in an irregular organic finish. The wings are fletched with a specially commissioned marbled paper. the fore-edges are stained red and upon opening, italian handmade endpapers display their sombre silver grey finery.
All copies come ribboned and slipcased and with a handcrafted bilongo/telesmata.

We will be packing and shipping all the pre-ordered copies over the next few days.

Our congratulations to Nicholaj on this important book.
