In 1818, French occultist Jacques Auguste Simon Collin wrote a legendary tome that described ancient daemons and organized them into hellish hierarchies. This book and tarot card set draws upon that work, identifying the unique strengths of 69 daemons and explaining how to summon their energies to answer our most pressing questions about life, love, health, money, and more.
Ariana Osborne is a second-generation print designer who grew up watching her mother magically turn piles of notes and sketches into real books. Now that she's all grown up, Ariana does her own work in design and layout for books, magazines, comics, and digital--and she still thinks that's pretty magical. She lives in Portland, OR, where she keeps bees for the wax (and the gossip), trains a doberman for the companionship (and the laughs)--and occasionally feeds a black cat because he showed up one day (probably when she unlocked the sufficient witchery achievement). But the cat didn't move in permanently because Ariana's just not that sort of witch.
This fiendishly forbidden book and tarot card deck draw upon "Le Dictionnaire Infernal" (Infernal Dictionary), a legendary tome originally published in 1818 by French occultist Jacques Auguste Simon Collin. Working from centuries of arcane magical texts, Collin described ancient daemons and organized them into hellish hierarchies. Now Ariana Osborne has reinterpreted Collin's classic text for today's audience and created a divination system to identify the unique strengths and specialties of 69 of those daemons and explain how to summon their energies.
