Occlith 0: Omniform, the first in a series from award-winning artist, typographer and printer Joseph Uccello. Containing essential texts of the Paracelsian School of Alchemy, the whole serves as an animated sourcebook of essential Hermetic philosophy and Natural Magic, vivified through the letterpress-inspired type design and Uccello’s ink and brush drawings. In addition to the lavishly-illustrated alchemical texts, Omniform includes an essential lexicon of alchemical terms, and an original Introduction by Uccello serves as the portal of ingress into this Corporeal Book.
Know therefore that severall and various chips or fragments fell out in the cutting or carving of the great mysterie, whereof some became flesh, of which there are infinite sorts and formes: others were Sea-monsters, of wonderfull variety also; some became herbs; others fell into wood: abundance into stones and metalls.
