Cataract of Fire & Blood

This is a zine I just completed with Terence Hannum.  Terence is an amazing artist who works in painting, drawing, and video, who I am lucky to count amongst my friends.  Check out his work here.  He also plays in an awesome noise duo, Locrian, with Andre Foisy.  You can find out more about Locrian on the Land of Decay and Bloodlust! blogs, as well as their myspace page.  Info on the zine below:

Firelight in a pitch-black space. Sigils carved into ready flesh. "Cataract of Fire & Blood" is a collaborative effort by Terence Hannum and Elijah Burgher, pairing images by the artists that explore subculture and ritual.
The title of the zine is lifted from a passage in William Blake's "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell": 
"beneath us was nothing now to be seen but a black tempest, till looking east between the clouds & the waves, we saw a cataract of blood mixed with fire, and not many stones' throw from us appear'd and sunk again the scaly fold of a monstrous serpent."
7" × 8.5" / 20 pages. Full color zine in black envelope, stamped with wax. Edition of 100.
$10ppd (US) / $15ppd (world)
