2023 edition

1 in stock


An homage to the the naked starlight, the immortal nectar which overflows the boundaries of the chalice of night, gushing forth in fountains and streams and rivulets, cleansing the gears of the machinery of sleep, rolling forth like a tide of radiant dew to wash away the iniquities of day. To the Great Night of the ancients, to stars and constellations long since forgotten, to the night of blasphemy and heresy, to the senseless Kosmos of the Demiurge and of Azathoth, the sightless monarch of monotony’s empire and regent of the infinite wastes. To Ain Soph, the immaculate void of the Kabbalists, the perfect potentiality of the Absolute and the annihilation of the contemplative, the ascetic, the undefiled lover of the Pure One. To the abominable city of dreadful night, to the burned and blackened ruins of Piranesi and Bruegel, to the miserable curses of the wretched and the damned, abandoned and forsaken beneath the ravenous stars of perilous winters. To N.O.X. and to LAYLAH, to BABALON and CHAOS, to NUIT, the naked brilliance of the voluptuous night sky, sublime and holy body of eternity unveiled, divine drunkenness of poets and of prophets, of mystics and of madmen. O guiding dark of Night, O dark of Night more darling than the dawn, your light is more dear than the lilies of the day. There are Gifts and Sights that Kos’mos brings to those with Eyes to see. We need more Eyes! We need more Eyes!
