Get into the spirit of Halloween with the 18th-century black magic of 'Touch Me Not' facsimile

Featured image—captioned "The monster guarding purgatory’s exit" in translation from the German—is reproduced from Touch Me Not: A Most Rare Compendium of the Whole Magical Art, the singular new release from Fulgur Press containing a facsimile reproduction of a late eighteenth-century Austrian manuscript compendium of black magic. "You who have come into the possession of this very rare book, whoever you may be—remember that it is called Touch Me Not," the manuscript ends, again in translation from the German. "Meddling in this art never goes unpunished. Be wary of leafing through it without foreknowledge, safeguarding and preparation. Never touch it on certain days, hours and constellations, or else you will become a victim of your own curiosity and culpable prying. Remember this warning, and seek out a genuine master in this art who is able to teach you to prepare healing medicine from poison, and to tread on dragons and basilisks. Woe, tenfold woe! unto those who are so unfortunate as to impiously disregard this warning."
