Gunsho: Demonology

Artist Gunsho (of Providence) is undertaking a massive screenprinted poster project for 2006:

"The Goetia, or The Lesser Key of Solomon the King, is a handbook of astrological sorcery that gives detailed instructions for summoning and seeking the aid of its 72 demons, which it describes in detail. Its origins and age are uncertain, but it is an ancient text likely compiled from several sources.

"Gunsho is undertaking an intensive effort to recreate the 72 demons of the Goetia and other works of demonology, to be completed by the end of 2006. Each demon will be the subject of a print, and the series is to be titled DEMONOLOGY."

The first two demon prints are out, and look massive to say the least. I signed up for the whole shibbang, which while a big investment wallet-wise, will surely reward my eye sockets for years to come.
