Serpent Songs: Fine bound Serpentine Edition

We were delighted to recieve the fine bound Serpentine edition of Serpent Songs for Lammas.


Have spent the day packing books and just stopped to take a few photos.

64 exemplars (all now sold)
Bound in full pistachio leather, gilded ends, cloth covered slipcase, black silk ribbon, marbled endpapers. Stamped with a vesica and serpent device.

All pre-ordered copies now being wrapped and sent.

Hope that you all enjoy your books.

Serpent Songs is a wide ranging work that deals with the issues of witch blood, taboo, the other, the liminal state, fire, dream, art and need as vectors of the Craft. What emerges is not a narrow definition of what it means to engage in Traditional Craft, but a set of shared characteristics and approaches which become evident despite the cultural gulfs in place and time. This is a book of praxis, beliefs and their own definitions of the art itself rather than those applied to it by outsiders. These are the voices who for the most part operate in silence but now wish to be heard.

Serpent Songs is still available as a standard hardback and digital edition: www.scarletimprint.com
