Oracular Magic Squares - Black Toad - Linocut Prints

$10.00 - $35.00

Four oracular magic squares drawn from from the cunning craft traditions of Devon and Cornwall as recorded in "The Black Toad" by Gemma Gary. These squares are each hand carved into a linoleum block and printed individually with water soluble ink on card stock. They are roughly 2" x 2".

Use the Pattern drop down menu to select which square you want, or choose a set of all four.

The "MILON" Square
"The first square here given shall be worn beneath the practitioner's hat during their divinatory operations to know the past and present of matters."

The "GILIONIN" Square
"Where the practitioner brings into employment such devices as magical mirrors, seeing glasses, 'shew stones' and crystals, the second square here shown may be placed so that the device is set upon it for the operation."

The "NASI" Square
"For operations in which the practitioner seeks to conjure forth visions within fire; the third square...shall be placed so that the flaming vessel may be set upon it, or else shall be placed before the fire."

The "ADMON" Square
"For the conjuration of oracular visions in water, the fourth square...shall be placed so that the vessel of water may be placed upon it, or else the square will be placed before the body of water employed."

All quotes are taken from "The Black Toad" by Gemma Gary, pages 77-79.

Because of the nature of the printing process I cannot make changes to this item. I can make custom linoprints though, if you want something similar. Please message me and I'd be happy to work with you.

Because these are custom handmade items, please allow 3-5 business days for me to complete your order. I will do my best to finish your magic square as quickly as possible.
