The Night Circus

Le Rêveur Parle: An Interview with Erin Morgenstern by J.L. Schnabel

Upon first reading The Night Circus, the void in your heart that you were previously unaware of is filled.

Lupercalia 2017 at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab + A Giveaway!

Soooo…perhaps you recall that last month we shared our opinion that sweets for the sweet should be an everyday practice, as opposed to a dreary once a year tradition, confined to one disappointing day in mid-February? We urged you to treat yourself to indulgent luxuries because you are your own best sweetheart and why should you wait until a commercially […]

Dutch photographer Nona Limmen is based in Amsterdam, but her marvelous analog photos capture visions of a vast, mystical world nebulously bordering our own. This mysterious land, woven of dreams and memories, is inhabited by powerful women, liminal creatures wielding arcane forces so great they sometimes fracture their very being. Some of Limmen’s women are eldritch pagan priestesses conversing in whispered chants with […]

Wintersleep by Laura Makabresku, 2016

The Melancholy Visual Fables of Laura Makabresku

I’ve been quietly in love with the work of Polish photographer Laura Makabresku for years. Her otherworldly photographs fall into that special category of things that feel too personal and precious to mention to another living soul. Or rather, that’s how I once felt about certain things I held dear: that sharing something intensely meaningful […]

Slow Holler Tarot Deck: Queer + Southern Artists Re-Imagine The Arcana

I’ll admit that tarot has never been one of my favorite mediums for art or divination, somewhat because divination as a whole gives me anxiety but mostly because the gender symbolism in the arcana has always felt incredibly constricting, a word I don’t particularly want to associate with my future. Thankfully, Slow Holler is here […]

Twin Peaks Original Score Vinyl Re-issue

With lush cinematography, bizarre characters, surreal dialogue and dense, murky mythology–David Lynch scratched several of our dark and strange thematic itches with his marvelously bold and enigmatic show, Twin Peaks, in the early 1990s.  And even if, like me, you did not watch Twin Peaks when it first aired (but instead saw it 18 years later, […]
