BOOK OF SHADOWS: A QUEER EROTICA ARTBOOK SERIES
VOLUME 1: BUFFOMET
Conceived by Nero O'Reilly, made possible by Iris jay, and internally constructed by Mia 'Hye'
Mardikian, the BOOK OF SHADOWS series is a spot color, high-quality artbook line dedicated to pristine design, atmosphere, and celebrating LGBTQIA+ sexuality in hedonistic revelry. With queer sexuality historically aligned with the "occult" and sometimes deemed by heteronormative societies as "evil," BOOK OF SHADOWS aims to celebrate and embrace the sexuality of our LGBTQIA+ contributors with the deities that are typically associated as demonic, and how sometimes to "live deliciously" is to see ourselves
embraced by renderings of metaphysical, erotic forces.
BOOK OF SHADOWS' first volume, BUFFOMET, premiered on Kickstarter on October 7th, 2019,
was successfully funded, and fulfilled in latter 2020.
VOLUME 2: PARADISE LUST
For the sake of maintaining the status quo within our wider, cisheteronormative society, LGBTQ+ identities and sexualities continue to be marginalized. We are vilified for simply existing by our political and cultural leaders, as well as harangued with legislative attempts to silence and eradicate us. While in BUFFOMET we danced with demons and lived deliciously, who’s to say we aren't also allowed to feel a little holy as well?
That’s where PARADISE LUST comes in: a book chock-full of the most wildly horny angels one could ever receive visions of, all from our own, self-imagined heavens.
PARADISE LUST's nirvana certainly won’t be lost unto its blessed readers. With a 100+ page count, this high quality-stock artbook is filled with sexually explicit depictions of angels from across all religions, interpretations, and mythos.
BOOK OF SHADOWS' second volume, PARADISE LUST, is now funding on BackerKit.com!
