Our Bogeys, Our Shelves: The Magician's Library as Mentor, Companion, and Oracle

From the peculiar pamphlet series by our friends at Fiddler's Green:

The Magician’s Library as Mentor, Companion & Oracle
A Fiddler's Green Leaflet by Clint Marsh & Jeff Hoke
12 pages, 3 illustrations, and copper foil leaf logo on the cover

Your home library is more than a mere collection of fact and fantasy. By acquiring and keeping each of the books that line your shelves, you craft an ever-changing self-portrait made of memories, knowledge, hopes, and secrets unique to you alone.

This illustrated essay unpacks the self-reflective mystery of one such personal library and offers you a way to do the same with your own. Through the ancient and contemplative art of bibliomancy, you’ll learn how to use your collection of books as a powerful magical tool, gaining insights into your past, present, and future.

Clint Marsh uses elements of myth, magic, folklore, and humor to help people navigate everyday life. He is the author of a number of books and pamphlets, and is a winner of the Bookseller/Diagram Prize.

Jeff Hoke is the award-winning author and illustrator of The Museum of Lost Wonder and has designed environments for museums in the United States, the Czech Republic, India, and Japan. See his work at lostwonder.org.
